Day 33/67 of GED in Five Months, coordinates, and area

      Adulting must include understanding how complex ideas fit together and affect other ideas, people, places, and/or things.  The Cartesian coordinate system also gives us access to yet another form of language, allowing us to describe the world around us more fully in terms of precise location.


     Figuring out the area of a polygon in a coordinate plane can also help us figure out other things, don’t you think?

Middle of week 9/18
Day 33 Wk 9
Grammar: coordinating conjunctions

Action Prompts:

1.)   How important do you think mathematics are, especially more complex maths, and how might it help, if you think it does, with Adulting?  How might math fit in wit Project Do Better?

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.

4.)  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.

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.

  1. This lesson is part of Project Do Better in two ways, or three, even: 1.) it’s building empathy and education in general,
    2.). it’s teaching, with a new teaching tool, via this lesson plan and independent teaching at that and,
    3.) it also gets one of the Service Adulthood prerequisites in the GPS and navigation area.
