'16-'17 General Discussion for Lesson 2.9


Use this thread to discuss your questions and comments about how to run the lesson.



(Not a “how to run the lesson” comment. Not sure where else to put it.). The “digital divide” portion of this lesson sparked excellent discussions among my students, even at our 7:25 a.m. starting time. :smile:


@anne_trachsel Sharing things went awesome is always welcome! This is definitely a good place to put it!


On AP CSP Unit 2 Stage 9 – Assumptions: I enjoyed this very much, so I was looking further into GFT. I found this article that indicates that some good scientists have done some tweaking of the weights on queries and the algorithms used. They have a fairly good fit with their methodology. http://www.nature.com/articles/srep12760#introduction You may want to look into this. It generated another round of discussion in my class Monday when we did Stage 9 – a good discussion about forecasting models and how we can check their validity.


Teaching the course for the first time. Concerned about the articles and how quickly my students will be able to read/process the content; thinking about using the suggestion to read one article as a whole class. Can anyone recommend any of the articles over the others for this purpose?


I thought the Time article and good and straight forward but any of the articles would be good.
