Today I guest lectured in a Math class of all things. Are you chuckling with compassion? I comforted myself and eased my nerves by saying, “Whatever weakness I possess in math, I more than make up for in verbs.”
I aimed to help math students write more clearly and effectively as they blog about various measurable environmental issues–whether water, meat consumption, fracking, or any interesting and timely environmental matter. I’m inviting them to showcase their equations and results in a way that engages a real audience and motivates them to change.
Patterns? Hey, this moment synchronized writing and numbers after all. Writing contains a numeric component! Oh, beautiful harmony!
