Incidentally, for such a highly anticipated newpic, how is it that no one ONGed until three minutes past the hour?

Well, that's easy: because it was a snake on a plane.

*takes headphones off*

It is plain to me that in this instance, either plane or plain would suffice for the purpose of this rather plain pun, as a plane is often resemblance of a plain, especially when smoothly planed with a very fine planer.

I guess I should mention (for posterity) that I'm about a dix behind and I'm probably won't be catching up as fast as other times. See you in the Present in the Future! *continues to blindpost*

Dracomax wrote:Well, when I was in 5th grade, I more or less invented algebra because I hated guess and check problems. Nobody (not even the teachers) seemed to understand what I was doing, and told me to just do the guess and check when I tried to explain it(I hadn't quite got the idea of variables yet, so I kept saying "Some number."
That's really cool. I find myself inventing things that already exist too. It takes longer but gets me a better understanding of those things. The better understanding eventually gives the ability to create new and cool things.

On the guess and checking, that's frustrating. Any time I am forced to guess, I'm forced to figure out a system. 8-)

Dracomax wrote:--because in the US, the point of education is to get high scores on testing and better jobs. Understanding things? Who cares about that.
That frustrates me too. Multiple choice might be useful if the test-taker had to create the choices before picking one. Then it would be a useful skill: decision making (which is actually choice creating). :)


Edit: Everyone's talking about snakes. How was I supposed to know this? I seem so off-topic now. :( lol.

Yeah, but a (mathematical) plane is a very flat, boring,... plain surface. Whereas the snakelpy is on a nice bumpy plant-covered plain which isn't plain enough to be called a plane. Plus it can't fly.
Or something.

Among other things, thanks for the reminder that it was Dracomax that re-invented algebra.

As to your comment here, this is actually a well-known pedagogical technique, though not often used. Even creating the questions themselves.

BTW, it is possible to create good multiple choice questions, but so hard that it is (also) not often done.

I once had so many students in a course that I was forced to use automated testing. The questions were machine scored and I'd get back an analysis of the results. One measure (I forget it's name) measures the correlation on each question with the overall class score. The meaning is that if the score for that question is negative (range -1..1) that the students who do better overall tend to miss this question. In other words the question confused the better students as well as the poorer ones. Very humbling for a teacher. Surprising how common such questions are, actually.

[codger talk]
A friend of mine (> 40 yrs ago) was taking a graduate course in test design. One of the important rules is: don't express the questions in the negative. They were given the task of writing a buncha questions and submitting them. She asked me to review her work before she submitted it. Every question she wrote, without exception, was written with a double negative. .... ok ...

Ok, Fluffy forgives. She too is named for a long deceased house molpy. Under these circumstances she is happy to share her name. (Chumley Kieryn)

ETA: BTW. Is Kieryn a TrueName?

I shall name my new domain "kenmelken's Imperial Palace of Time"

In Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is 100 miles high and 100 miles wide. Once every 1000 years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. One time, I changed just the last sentence of this signature, and lots of you noticed. Image

In all likelyhood the whole thing's collapsed into water by now1... but hey... you're welcome to it :)

1Unless La Petite and her friends reinforced the base with concrete and subsequently built some kind of burj-thing, in which case, well claimed, Sir!
