Day 4/67: GED in 5 months, and context

As healthy adults, do we always make sure to look at the full context of a given situation, comment, or quotation, when we make judgements about things we hear, or even see? 

Learning to take the context of a situation into account, much like figuring out the meaning of a word based on the context of the words around it, is part of education, and part of continuous Adulting Education also, as we all remember this important practice.

Here is the lesson plan for Day 4, of 67:   (Week 2 of 18 weeks…), in which we looked at a bit of the context surrounding Cesar’s crossing of the Rubicon crossing_the_rubicon

Day 3/67 of Five Month GED, and Adulting as creative problem solving

Learning to solve problems, which I think is the essence of Adulting, begins at an early age and continues to count for a lifetime. Today’s lesson poses a question: What numbers did the ancient Greeks use for counting?

That question was meant to raise the problem of counting non-discrete quantities before Arabic numerals came to Europe (from India).  The problem itself was meant to introduce the concept of using mind-maps BestMindMap as a tool to begin the problem-solving process_of_problem_solving process.

Here is the lesson plan for Day 3, of 67, week 1/18:
