Starting off the Year with a Measurement Lab
Posted November 14, 2008on:
Perhaps I expect too much. I think I am going to create a new lab that is just about measuring stuff correctly and accurately. I had my own tools from when I was big enough to walk, so I take for granted that everybody knows how to read a tape measure or meter stick. Apparently this and analog clocks are skills our children no longer have to master. Despite three months of using nothing but meters in class and lab, I still have students who use the inches and feet when I lower my guard.
Moms and Dads, please teach your kids to use a ruler. Not everything in life is a teacher’s job. Sorry for the rant.
