Yesterday, I went to beautiful art exhibition of Gia Ram in Kaunas. She is very creative artist from Lithuania with interesting perspective on life. If she happens to be your city/country then definitely attend her exhibition. 😍

Um ehrlich zu sein...
Das is echt kake. Wir haben kurz nach 08:00 Uhr morgens & es ist keine Wolke am Himmel. Is euch aufgefallen, dass bis vor 3 oder 2 Monaten fast kein einziges Flugzeug am Himmel zu sehen war? Je mehr sich das hier jetzt alles entspannt, fangen wieder mehr Leute an zu fliegen. Die Erde, Mutter Natur, hat sich gerade erholt. Ich persönlich finds halt nicht so geil, die Luft sofort wieder zu verpesten. Meiner Meinung nach sollte man festlegen wie viele Flugzeuge pro Woche oder Monat abheben/starten/losfliegen dürfen. Somit kann man das eindämmen & die Erde wird nicht mehr wärmer.
Wenn du auch eine Meinung dazu hast, bin ich offen dafür.
Danke für deine Aufmerksamkeit.
Dad, do I really need it?
Have you ever heard someone saying “why do I need to learn all this math?” When I was at high school I always said this to my mom. I couldn’t say I hated math, but the things which I need to learn instead of just being able to grasp on more or less intuitively always bothered me. I was lazy and I did not want to put even a bit of effort in anything what didn’t really intrigue me enough.
That was the case with my math. As a kid I just culdn’t understand when will I need to use all the fancy trigonometry. Tangents and arccosinuses, calculating properties of triangles drawn into some circles and much more “crazy shit” teachers were trying to put in us as kids. And only after few years I got to realize how much of the trigonometry I will have to use in my life on my own free will.
Not so long time ago I heard exactly this statement from my fifth grader. “Dad, I hate math. I won’t do this. I will never ever need it!”
This triggered a faint smile in me and I asked: “Do you like the car I’m building?” “Well, yes, of course! It’s so cool!” “And what do you think, do I need the math for that or not?” And this left him thinking about it for a few minutes. He started questioning what and how did I calculate and it was so cool I was able to prove my point with real life examples. He’s still from time to time trying to say he does not like the math. But since then he never ever questioned what for is it good.
And I really think that teaching should be based not only on developing abilities to do one or another thing, but also making sure practical aspect of it will be known and understood. For me personally there’s no better motivation than a real example.
Have you ever heard similar questions from your kids? How did you deal with it?
