I have abandoned blogging about maths, distracted by a myriad of other things in my life but I happened to miss it so...here I am. Back and smiling, enthusiastic about life and its vicissitudes. I was reflecting on today's teaching and the first thing I meant to share was the great solidarity among my grade 7 students. They tend to organise themselves in spontaneous little groups, help each other out and almost work as an self-regulated unit. I wonder how much I've contributed to this state of affairs (encouraging better students to explain the work to their mates) but I was quite pleased to see it functioning today.
Cheers for my little ones :)
