- clarity, set goals & purpose. Cast a vision
- transparency, Communication
- support, Do you have tools
- trust, and empower them to be creative, and failure is OK.
Q: What are the key aspects of #leadership in a primarily remote workforce? #AskCitrix— Citrix (@citrix) June 23, 2020
A: Remote leadership relies on a few things – clarity of vision and goals, transparency, support by supplying the tools needed to succeed, and empowerment through trust. #CitrixRemoteWorks

Nathan is a mathematics major in secondary teacher education at Western Illinois University (and a Leatherneck football player).
I got a smart watch for Christmas. It has a ‘compass’ that also shows my longitude, latitude, altitude, and the Atmospheric Pressure in hPA.
So I studied up on the units for Atmospheric Pressure. Disclaimer: This is crude. I want to get some numbers I can remember.
Pa is an SI unit for atmospheric pressure. It means Pascal. One Pascal is 1 Newton per square meter. hPa is hectopascal. 1 hPa = 100 Pa
The ‘Imperial’ (English) unit would be PSI (pounds per square inch). BTW, 1 PSI is quite a bit, but 1 Pascal isn’t much.
Often the weather person on television give the atmospheric pressure in inches of Mercury (inHg).
1 inHg = 33.9 hPa
.02953 inHg = 1 hPa
Low, Regular, and High Pressure
1000 hPa (29.5 inHg) is low pressure.
1010 hPa (29.8 inHg) is ‘regular’ pressure.
1040 hPa (30.7 inHg) is high pressure.
The key is which direction is the barometric pressure going (rising or decreasing).
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. See also.
