Required Readings

RR: March 14, 2013

It’s Pi, Popes, Robots…and Ben Goldacre. It’s that kind of a day. Enjoy your required readings, students. I’ll be quizzing you later.

Celebrate Pi Day – In the US at least, where we place the day before the month. Sorry, Europe. But, hey, enjoy these math teacher resources for Pi Day!

Robotics Competition Draws Hundreds, Encourages STEM Education – In Kansas, of all places! 😉

Catholic-College Leaders Welcome New Pope as Scholar and Leader – The Jesuits are known as an intellectual order within the Church. I wonder what, if any, attitudes will change toward science? Will Pope Francis I be as scientifically open-minded as Pope John Paul II?
