Thompson, Associate Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Kent State University ; Lauren K. Schiller, , Teachers College, Columbia University, and Marta Mielicki, Postdoctoral research associate, Kent State UniversityIn his March 2021 Netflix special, comedian Nate Bargatze complains about having to teach his kids a confusing “new math” based on standards known as the Common Core.“The goal of Common Core is to use one sheet of paper for every problem,” Bargatze jokes. He observes that this new math requires people to “keep breaking the problem down.”“You put the problem at the top, and it just keeps going,” Bargatze says. “And then what’s funnier is you see old math in the middle of it. As you break it down, old math gets in there and you’re like, ‘Oh, just do that at the top.’ I don’t even know what we’re doing.”Comedian Nate Bargatze tells a joke about Common Core math during his comedy special.Math worriesBargatze is by no means alone in his frustration. Since many schools went largely remote during the COVID-19 pandemic, countless parents, me included, are becoming burnt out as we find ourselves thrust into the role of substitute math teacher.Why does this so-called new math – which has actually been around for over a decade – draw so much scorn from parents?This new math is based on a list of standards that students should master within each grade. It’s different from “old math” in that the standards focus not only on the step-by-step procedures to solve math problems, but also on why those procedures work in the first place. The idea is to teach the procedures in such a way that children can apply this knowledge to future math problems that they encounter – both at school and in real-life contexts.For instance, in solving the multiplication problem, 312 x 23, parents historically might line the problem up and start multiplying from right to left. We were told that we had to include the 0 on the right under 936, but I don’t recall ever being told why. But under the Common Core standards, students are encouraged to break the problem down into hundreds, tens and ones. This newfangled way to do the math makes it more transparent where the answer, 7,176, and that mystery 0 come from.Overcoming math anxietyAs Bergatze’s stand-up bit points out, this new math has triggered some parents’ “math anxiety” – a common apprehension that can impair math performance, many studies show.Researchers haven’t completely figured out how to eliminate math anxiety. But as a researcher who studies why people hate math, I believe there are steps parents can take to combat any negative attitudes they may have toward math and to improve children’s math understanding. Five of those steps are listed below.1. Point out math in everyday lifeMath learning doesn’t happen just in classrooms. Parents can draw children’s attention to math all around them. They can talk about math in the grocery store or at the bus stop. One idea is to incorporate positive math talk while reading books with our children, even if the books don’t inherently include numbers. For example, even though the classic children’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” doesn’t include counting or comparing how much the caterpillar eats each day, parents can insert guiding scenarios like “The very hungry caterpillar ate 4 strawberries. Let’s count them. 1-2-3-4. Did the caterpillar eat more plums or strawberries?” This is a “two-for-one deal” that could help time-strapped parents promote literacy and numeracy.Playing Chutes and Ladders can help children learn to identify, compare and estimate numbers.

Research has shown that playing board games pays off. One study found that while low-income families played board games less at home than middle-income families, even one hour of board-game play across a period of two weeks increased low-income children’s math performance to the level of their middle-income peers.3. Break math down step by stepTo help kids avoid the COVID slide, a major dip in math performance occurring during the pandemic, parents can break down math problems step by step. As they learn the procedure at each step children can then better understand how to get to the correct answer, or where they made a mistake along the way.4. Draw connections to more familiar and well-liked mathParents can also help children understand more difficult math concepts, such as fractions, by drawing connections to more familiar, well-liked and less anxiety-provoking math, such as whole numbers or percentages. For instance, parents can show that ¾ – that is, three-fourths – is the same as 75 out of 100, or 75%. Parents can draw a connection to money, too. There are four quarters in a dollar. Each quarter is worth 25 cents. That means that three out of four quarters is worth 75 cents.5. Avoid negative math attitudesThis recommendation goes hand in hand with our first recommendation. Parents should seek out opportunities to talk about math at every chance they get, but they should avoid negative math talk. Many an American will freely admit to being “not a math person”. These off-the-cuff remarks can have serious consequences for children, who soak up information in their environments.Math-anxious teachers and parents can transmit their anxiety to children, especially girls. Girls and women have higher math anxiety, which could be one reason they have lower math performance and less confidence when estimating numbers and are less likely than men to pursue STEM careers.I hope parents embrace their new role as math tutors, because it seems as if home schooling will continue throughout the spring for many students. It shouldn’t go unmentioned that kids aren’t all that enamored with their home-school teachers either. Some may even hope they won’t have the same teacher next year.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Public sector pays the price

first_imgPublic sector pays the priceOn 4 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today Congestion charging is here to stay. It looks like public sector staff willpay the price for working in the capital – but there’s been no sign ofdisruption on or off the roads. Jane Lewis reportsIt has been hailed a triumph by some, and it certainly wasn’t the”bloody day” that Ken Livingstone warned Londoners to expect. But while it is still too early to call the congestion charge a success, itis probably safe to say that anyone who took up William Hill’s 5:1 odds thatthe charge would be scrapped by the end of the year, must have resignedthemselves to taking a hit. Nearly three weeks into the scheme, there has been no sign of the widespreaddisruption, violent public protest, or mass refusal to pay the £5 charge thatso many predicted. Now it’s here, how are we going to live with it? And who will be mostaffected? In the run-up to the launch, the most vociferous opposition came froman unlikely coalition of Smithfield meat-workers and West End theatre staff,who teamed up with solicitors Class Law to mount a High Court challenge onbehalf of all low-paid workers. Taxing the poor Both Livingstone and the company responsible for managing the scheme,Transport for London (TfL), have long maintained that the impact on this groupwould be minimal, claiming that 85 per cent of those on low incomes living inor around central London don’t have cars anyway. This was challenged in some quarters. “Poorer people tend to shift workat unsocial hours when public transport is least available,” claimed theRAC. Nonetheless, the action was quietly dropped after raising just one tenth ofthe £500,000 it needed to bring the case to court. Its sponsors claimed victorybecause Livingstone has given assurances that he would at least considerintroducing a cheaper rate for drivers on low incomes. The controversy still raging, however, relates to key public sector workers.Here the scheme’s devisors appear to have shown remarkable inconsistency. Whilegovernment chauffeurs, police, firefighters and certain NHS staff carryingequipment or drugs are exempt from the charge, the majority of NHS workers,ambulance drivers and teachers are not. “We are already hearing anecdotal evidence that schools in the zone arebeing hit, with some teachers considering resignation,” said a NationalUnion of Teachers spokeswoman. For many, the prospect of spending an extra £1,200 a year just to get towork is a step too far – particularly in the absence of any forthcoming deal tohelp with the costs, “and there’s very little that individual schools cando”. One option under consideration is to raise the London Weighting allowanceto compensate for the charge. But this, as she pointed out, “is a veryblunt instrument”. Staff shortages London Ambulance staff are marginally better off, having struck a deal withemployers that gives those working in the zone £550 per year towards the charge– a move that will cost more than £250,000 a year. This is more likely to put pressure on other NHS chiefs to follow suit –particularly given strong language from unions. “This charge will tip manyon the breadline over the edge,” said Unison’s London spokesman GeoffMartin. The fear is that the charge will only add to the chronic staff shortagesalready gripping the NHS in London, making it even more difficult to recruitand retain doctors, nurses and paramedics. “It will add to the continual dripeffect, making it difficult for people to work in central London. Given thechoice of a job just inside the zone, or one outside, which would youchoose?” added Martin. The strategy HR chiefs in the NHS appear to be taking is to tackle theproblem on a case-by-case basis. Headed by Tim Higginson, personnel director at Guys & St Thomas’, theyhave come together and set up an appeals panel. Given that the charge has sofar provoked just one recorded resignation (a clerical officer at MoorfieldsEye Hospital), this selective approach may well turn out to be the mosteffective. Recruitment and retention is likely to prove less of an issue in the privatesector, said Charles Cotton, adviser on reward and employment conditions at theCIPD. “I don’t think someone is going to move out of central Londonbecause of the congestion charge. Uncertainty about the economy means therewon’t be a large number of people wanting to move job at present,” hesaid. However, he noted, there is still widespread concern that the dire state ofpublic transport could prove the Achilles heel of the congestion charge. “There may well be a lot of complaints from companies that staff arearriving at work stressed and exhausted,” said Cotton. Employers foot the bill Luckily, many staff may not have to worry about the cost. Research by lawfirm Fox Williams shows that 35 per cent of London employers have decided tofoot the bill. But, as employment specialist Helen Monson pointed out, thiscould have complicated implications for tax. While business journeys can be treated as expenses under existing InlandRevenue rules, the same is not true of journeys to and from work. Thus, ifemployers choose to reimburse staff for travelling to work, it will be treatedas a taxable benefit. That could put an extra 40 per cent on the bill for anupper-bracket taxpayer. Employers taking this course of action, she added, could also facechallenges for unfair treatment from staff using public transport. If commuterswho drive to work are reimbursed for their journey, why not them too? Path to flexible working The charge may well have other implications for HR in London. “There is a very real possibility that homeworking and more flexiblehours will become more popular,” said the Institute of Directors,”though this is likely to be confined to larger companies who can affordto accommodate different working patterns rather than small business.” Are we likely to see an extension of the congestion charge elsewhere? Theshort answer is yes. The launch of the scheme has attracted massive support ona global basis, while in the UK, some 35 towns and cities, including Bristol,Edinburgh and Nottingham, have announced an interest in following suit. Indeed, individual congestion schemes may shortly be overtaken by somethingmuch bigger. Sources close to the Government claim that widespread publicacceptance of Livingstone’s scheme – combined with its huge revenue-raisingpotential – means that plans for a national road toll scheme, based oninstalling sophisticated satellite tracking technology in every vehicle in thecountry, “have moved sharply up the political agenda”. Compared with the implications of a New Labour-inspired ‘spy-in-the-skysatellite’ scheme, charging from 3p a mile on quiet roads, to £1.30 a mile incrowded city centres, the London congestion charge will soon seem small beer. www.londontransport.co.ukwww.data.teachers.org.ukwww.unison.org.ukwww.iod.co.uk Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Joe Maddon explains Carl Edwards Jr. demotion, Pedro Strop faith ahead of Cubs’ deadline

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — Since arriving here for a three-game set against the Giants, Joe Maddon has shared his contrasting outlooks on a pair of Cubs relievers who have gone from bullpen anchors to liabilities over the past few months.For one of the struggling pitchers, the manager offered sharp criticism. For the other, he expressed optimism of an immediate turnaround. So while president of baseball operations Theo Epstein is reportedly prepared to enter the trade market for bullpen help, the team’s best avenue to bolstering its late-inning group may be from within. On that front, patience is all the club can try to exchange for results.Strop is still in the big leagues working through his struggles, which the Cubs are anxious to see subside. Edwards, too, could re-emerge if he regains his organization’s trust.”He’s a guy I felt really good about giving the ball to in the seventh (game) of the (2016) World Series,” Maddon said. “That actually happened, it’s not imagination. … But you’ve got to be brutally honest sometimes to get where you want to go.” Carl Edwards Jr. did not pass Maddon’s feel test one outing after returning from the IL on Friday. Edwards hit a batter, walked another and surrendered an RBI single in a third of an inning Sunday, prompting his demotion to Triple-A. “There’s something missing there, and he’s got to find it,” Maddon said. “He can still be a (top reliever), no question. But again, when we talk about feel and what we’re seeing right here … it doesn’t appear that’s on the horizon. For us to get where we want to go, we can’t have that right now.”Pedro Stop, meanwhile, has held onto his manager’s late-inning trust despite giving up three runs to the Giants in the eighth frame of Monday’s 5-4 defeat. Maddon told reporters afterward he expects Strop “to be normal” soon and that the right-hander has been unlucky of late.”I really believe in Pedro,” Maddon said.The Cubs (54-46) hope at least one of Edwards or Strop can return to form soon to help them weather a tough playoff chase and potential October appearance.MORE: Watch live MLB games all season long on fuboTV (7-day free trial)Edwards has a 5.87 ERA this season and a 2.63 mark in 13 2/3 innings since May 6, when he was called up following an April demotion. Strop has a 5.47 ERA this season and a 7.47 mark in 15 2/3 innings since that date. Strop’s positive track record in Chicago runs deeper, though: He has been a top relief arm since midseason in 2013, whereas Edwards broke through in 2016.Maddon noted Strop’s history with the Cubs in his explanation of how he has approached the two.”The difference is the body of work,” Maddon said. “Don’t underestimate the body of work and the presence and everything else.”Edwards has not commented publicly since being sent back to Triple-A, where he spent a month earlier in the year.  Strop, on the other hand, said “it’s really good to hear” his manager hasn’t given up on him yet amid his continued shakiness on the mound.Edwards and Strop aren’t Chicago’s only bullpen concerns, of course. Brad Brach has a 6.05 ERA and midseason signing Craig Kimbrel has been slow to find a groove. Brach gave up the walk-off home run to Pablo Sandoval on Tuesday night.But the contributions of Edwards and Strop to the Cubs’ recent success have made their downturns particularly jarring. Neither pitcher has finished a full season in the organization with an ERA above 3.75. Most years, they’ve been much better than that.last_img read more

WNBA playoff field set, LA-Minnesota meet in first round

first_imgLindsay Whalen, center, smiles with her teammates during a ceremony honoring her last regular season game for the Minnesota Lynx Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018, in Minneapolis. Whalen scored 10 points in the final regular-season home game of her career. The Lynx closed the WNBA basketball season with a 88-83 victory over the Washington Mystics. (Richard Tsong-Taatarii/Star Tribune via AP)NEW YORK (AP) — The WNBA playoffs are set after a wild, unpredictable regular season came to an end Sunday.As expected, Los Angeles and Minnesota will meet in the postseason for a third straight year. Unexpectedly, it’s in the first round.The two-time WNBA finalists finished a surprising sixth and seventh in the regular season and will face off in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.“Minnesota is a good team. You can throw records out the window right now,” Sparks coach Brian Agler said. “They have two of the elite offensive players in the league, one inside and one outside, they have veteran savviness, tough minded championship pedigree and we have played them enough, over 20 times in three years, so we know each other pretty well.”Phoenix will host Dallas, which earned the final playoff spot Friday, in the other first-round elimination game.“I mean, you obviously want to finish as high up as you can. There was a point there when we thought we were going to be in that top two, top four, but you have to win regardless. I think we’re playing well,” Phoenix guard Diana Taurasi said. “I think we found our groove a little bit on the things that we want to do. Getting a home game, but we still have to go out there and play hard and play really well to win.”Seattle and Atlanta earned byes to the semifinals by finishing first and second. The Dream clinched the No. 2 spot on the final day of the regular season. Washington and Connecticut earned first-round byes.“We are thrilled. There is a whole lot of parity in the league,” WNBA President Lisa Borders told the AP on Sunday night. “Clearly anyone can beat anyone on any given day. We are thrilled with the unpredictability.”Here are a few things to watch for in the opening round of the playoffs:ONE LAST RIDE: Minnesota Lynx point guard Lindsay Whalen announced she would retire after the season ended. She’s won four titles with the Lynx and hopes to have one more shot at a championship.The Lynx would have to beat Los Angeles and either Washington or Connecticut to get a chance to play at home again.“It was Lindsay Whalen’s last time at Target Center as a competitor in the WNBA during the regular season. I think we would all like to give her another chance to come back here but we’ll just take it one day at a time,” Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve said.NEW LIFE: Dallas backed its way into the postseason, losing nine straight games before beating Las Vegas to reach the playoffs Friday.last_img read more

Angelique Kerber appoints Wim Fissette as new coach

first_imgFormer world number one Angelique Kerber is hoping to bounce back from a disappointing campaign with the announcement that Belgian Wim Fisette will replace Torben Beltz as her coach in 2018, the German said on Thursday.After winning two grand slams and an Olympic silver medal in 2016, the 29-year-old failed to claim a single title this year and fell to 21st in the world rankings, also losing her spot as German number one to Julia Goerges.Kerber and compatriot Beltz first worked together from 2011-13 and rejoined forces in 2015, with the German pair having their most successful season a year later.”It’s been tough but I’m about to start a new chapter in my career, with a new coach,” Kerber said on her official Twitter account. “Thank you Torben Beltz for everything that you’ve done for me.”The next season is coming soon and I’m very excited to start working with Wim Fissette as my new coach. It’s a new chance and I’m curious to find out what we can achieve together.”Fissette has previously worked with top players such as Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka and Simona Halep, and coached Britain’s Johanna Konta for the 2017 season before the pair agreed to a mutual split at the end of the campaign.last_img read more
