Instinct vs Choice

8/9 years reviewed their Algebra skills (percents, irrational #s, properties of real #s, and ratios).  Our 7th years worked on understanding the difference between evaluating, simplifying, and solving equations. We also spent the morning completing our Paleolithic Era nomenclature on the Timeline of Humanity.  This week’s seminar reading was titled Living Like Weasels by Annie Dillard.  Students are starting to grasp the art of seminar. Everyone participated and asked analytical questions. I was really impressed.  Tomorrow is projects, puzzles, and presentations day.
