I’ve added Kitchen Table Math, which is a bliki, a cross between a blog and a wiki, “about doing math with your children.” Hosts are the very intelligent and similarly named Catherine Johnson and Carolyn Johnston.
Scroll down for a link to the Singapore Math placement test.
The Singapore tests are an eye-opener, because you see exactly how far behind our kids really are.
If we had moved to Singapore at the end of 4th grade, Christopher would have been placed in second semester 3rd grade. That’s a gap of 18 months by the age of 10.
I’ve also added University Diaries by Margaret Soltan, an English professor with a keen eye. She’s posted her results on the Trump Success Test, despite the humiliation of flunking the “wealth motivation” category. She got a D in greed. (No Kerry jokes, please. Oh, go ahead.)
