Head for the Carnival


The latest Carnival of Education is up over at Edwonks. Good stuff there, as always — I’m particularly intrigued by this post arguing for not giving homework in math class. I’m not sure if it resonates with me because of the quality of the argument, or because I’m tired of grading!

  1. Just another liberal professor

    I made the mistake of collecting homework problems for calculus, and I’ll never do it again. Instructor’s solutions manuals are more ubiquitous and easier for students to obtain than I had realized.

    From now on in my calculus-or-below courses, 100% of the grade will be determined entirely by exams and quizzes (as opposed to only 90%).
