Day 28/67 of GED in 5 Months, Equitable Love Triangles, and Adulting Education

The skill of translating ideas into other terms, or of translating mathematical terms into social ideas, is a crucial part of Adult citizenship responsibility,  and is thus part of any democracy movement.   Understanding sets of power relationships is also a crucial part of being an Adult in a democratic society.  Mathematics helps with that, as does reading novels, from your local public librarians list of recommendations!

 Start of week 8/18

Three kinds of triangles

(Day 27Day 29)

From the reading, what does this sentence mean to you?

“Women and girls represent half of the world’s population and, therefore, also half of its potential.”

So, since students were using a set of Master the HiSET books in the classroom, if you cannot get an online version of a larger GED/HiSET prep book with a summary of all of the  material tested in the 5 subject areas, please try looking for a set of open High School text books and then cross-reference that with the free practice tests for the GED and HiSET exams.  Back in 2016, I prepared for the Secondary mathematics (middle school and high school level) Praxis exams using online texts books, so I know that a bit of digging will reveal a variety of good open source text books online across grade levels.

Just let me know if you need help finding resources, and I’ll find something.


Action Items:

1.) Are love triangles always (or ever) equilateral,  do you think?  How might equality vs. equity relate to gender justice?

2.) Share your  thoughts with us, and why you think them, and

3.) Write a book, story, blog post or tweet that uses those thoughts, and then, please tell us about it! If you write a book, once it is published please consider donating a copy to your local public library.

(Day 1Day 5)

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at:…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

Please leave a review, if you can, on the GoodReads page.

    1. Well, I knew one triple, two wives and a husband all in their 60s, who claimed that this was so, but that may not be a love triangle, I suppose, since they claimed to be married (but I doubt that any jurisdiction will be issuing licenses for 3-party marriages any time soon…).

      Personally, I do not think so, despite the loud claims of some of my former friends to the contrary.
      I suppose they can try, and at least it brings attention to mathematics?

      1. Yeah, I’ve heard of polyamorous relationships, though I don’t know anyone personally in one. The sense I get from reading are that those relationships aren’t necessarily triangles – more like one point connected to two points and those two points not necessarily connected in the same way to each other. I suppose the same could be said about the “love triangles” we typically speak about as such. Love triangle is actually a pretty lousy visualization if you think about it!

        1. Yup, this is true: the polys I know are constantly having (as even they admit) ‘poly drama’ with their “primaries and secondaries” which do, as you point out, form more of a network than a set of triangles. And I agree that the “triangles” end up with pretty much the same results: unhappy people hurting each other.

          Too bad we can’t all just spend the time studying mathematics instead!
