Mr. Zamora's Philosophy on Student Learning
Students are successful when they work hard and study, and that
includes homework.
A formula for changing math education: Arthur Benjamin on TED.com
Someone always asks the math teacher, “Am I going to use calculus in real life?” And for most of
us, says Arthur Benjamin, the answer is no. He offers a bold proposal on how to make math
education relevant in the digital age. (Recorded at TED@PalmSprings 2009, February 2009 in
Palm Springs, California. Duration: 2:59)
Desert ants have a nifty way of finding their way back home
after a foray out of the nest to find food -- they count their steps. To prove it, some scientists
devised a creative experiment that showed just how the little guys do it. NPR's Robert Krulwich
and Odd Todd explain.
