Key (Philosophical) Points that emerged from talking w/ Liz: Key Points that emerged from your reflecting afterwards
  • on the connections between the "universal" and the "local,"
  • between Liz's presentations and possible applications in your classrooms,
  • on the advantages of having your students go exploring,
    to gather data on a "real" (i.e. as-yet-unanswered) question,
    vs. having them search out multiple ways of finding a "right" answer:
How much, indeed?
