Field of Science

Everything as usual

Let's see.  TPP is too much of a mother hen; TPP doesn't give enough instructions.  One week into a two week lesson, and two out of 24 people have uploaded material.  A mother hen warning was delivered.  People in the empty seats didn't get it.  The best of my students can keep pace with anyone anywhere; the worst of my students still belong in high school.  That's public education for you.  We provide opportunities, but a great many students fail to take advantage of what we provide, and then they wonder why they haven't learned much since high school.  On one hand my undergrad students are showing that they can operate at a graduate level; at the other extreme they are totally lost.  Well, it makes it easy to separate the sheep from the goats.
