Here we are at the time of the year when everybody seems to run out of time. The same is true of teachers, and this time it caught up with me. The solution? Combine personal needs with the needs of the classroom
I didn't have time to do my laundry, so I brought it in to school. Why not have the students hang it on the line for me? Of course, I had to put some quick equations, some with exponents and square roots, on each item of clothing. The assignment was to place the equations in order from least to greatest. Three teams worked simultaneously on different lines.
