Masters 4th Round Real-time Blogging (pt. 2)
“The roars are back at Augusta on Sunday.”
That’s like music to my ears. The last few years, it has been snores at Augusta on Sunday.
Another reason to cheer is Phil Mickelson’s promotion of math and science education. When wearing a completely different hat, I actually do research on why it is that between 25%-50% of college students get algebraic word problems like the following wrong:
“The Johnsons have lots of tulips and daisies in their flower shop. The number of tulips is six times the number of daisies. Using T to represent the number of tulips, and D to represent the number of daisies, write an equation that accurately describes the situation in the Johnsons’ flower shop.”
I agree with Phil, that if the future workforce has trouble with these relatively simple problems, we’re in trouble.
