Day 2.43

Mathematics – am I better at teaching geometry?  Is it just easier?  I don’t know, but the kiddos are doing really well at it.  I guess the logical leaps are smaller and more numerous.

Physics – Teaching reflection the 2nd time around is so much better.  Rather than just a random assortment of demos a coherent narrative is arising.  Just imagine if I’m doing this years from now!

Today’s activity involved observing reflection of candles in glass panes.  Only one of the candles below is lit.

The thicker glass block shows the double reflection (off of the front and back of the glass) quite clearly.image

My 3rd period class got curious.image
