We’re wrapping up learning about conservation of energy and prepping for the exam next week. Kids are feeling much stress, as is typical. We’re at that point in the prep cycle, though, that the super-on-it kids are highly stressed and the chill kids are super-chill. The divide is wide with few kids in between.

Tuesday night, I hosted Global Math Department with Tracy Zagar speaking. She talked about how to teach kids to relate ideas. While she focused on elementary mathematics, the topic stretches into high school science as well. Give the recording a listen this summer.
