What I Learned

NOT BASEBALL bit.ly/opioidsUS has a great activity on opioids. The data is clearly piecewise- linear for several years and then exponential. I plan to redo day 3, or day 4 in Math 131 when we bridge from linear to exponential growth with a version of this activity. It could be changed into a project, too. […]

There were some good ideas though. None […]

Quizizz

NOT BASEBALL Quizizz (careful to type the z’s in the right spot if my malware detector is right) is another classroom quizzing app. It can be run like Kahoot!, but the timers and scoring can be turned off.
