Good summary of what graphicacy is, especially early graphicacy in children. ￼
This definition of graphicacy￼ does not seem to be comprehensive enough to include spatial sense, but is an important subset, or component of, spatial sense and visualization￼. This definition of graphicacy seems to emphasize data visualization.
**Actually there is remediation, but it is just-in-time. There is corequisite support/remediation.
This sounds promising. Students do not like (or, equivalently, are not motivated) to take a semester-long remediation course.
Under this plan, the students
may be taking a similar amount of math, but the (previous) pre-requisite is now a corequisite.
Very good stuff here. Nice mathematics, nice symmetry, nice visually!
Nice paper with an explanation of what is going on by Carmen Melliger
here. Good mathematics!
Nice graphic by Shana McKay from Scaffolded Math.
Good opinion-editorial piece. I think it does deemphasize conceptual understanding problem-solving and may over-emphasize practice, but overall this is a good article.
I like the analogy of doing math in playing a musical instrument.

Note for teacher education students at W.I.U.
The TEP Handbook has been updated. There are numerous links still existing to the old handbook.

As of 2-28-18 the TEP Handbook was updated January 2018.
In particular, when writing the reflective paper, we now have
four (4) dispositions.
The math content test (presently “115”) is changing to “208” on 5/14/18.
