Day 30/67, 5 Month GED, Similar Triangle Ratios, and Adulting as lifelong language learning

     The skill of understanding ratios and similarity carries over from triangles to form another part of being an Adult in a democratic society.  If mathematics is a logical language that we must all keep current in our memory, and sharp in our understanding, then learning that particular language is also a key part of Adulting, is it not?


And a bit of a change from yesterday’s lesson plan: we now have history readings again!  Today’s grammar/history reading is on the Industrial Revolution.

 Middle of week 8/18
Lesson Plan: Day 30, Week 8
Grammar: semicolons and colons
Math: solving similar triangle ratios
Day 30, Week 8,  ExitTix
(Day 29Day 31)

Action Prompts:

1.) Share your  thoughts with us on why you think that ratios or similar triangles may (or may not) have to do with Adulting?

2.)    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.

3.)  Feel free to answer the exit ticket questions in the comments, or pose any other questions you may have about the lesson, if you wish.

Babylon 5 review posts from a fictional Minbari Ranger’s point of view, and my historical fiction serial Ann&Anna posts show how story inspires learning, from several escaping former slaves’ points of view…

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
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.
