Here is my first update in my quest to run at least 366 miles this year (a mile for every day) with an ultimate goal of hitting 500 miles.  I am off to a good start.  
It has been 3 weeks and I am off to a good start. January has been cold in New England, but I have gotten out and put down some miles. On January 1, I ran in the 35th Annual Hangover Classic 10K in Salisbury Massachusetts...

Math people, do any of you have a photo (hopefully something used on a website or something where the people in it are ok with it being used) of an undergraduate math class doing some group work (bonus if the instructor is pictured too)??    I have a student doing a presentation on inquiry oriented teaching/learning in undergrad math courses and would like to use a picture of this sort of class setting, but does not want to use me or my colleagues doing it.   Photo will be credited of course.

This was back in May, I guess I should have made that clear.

Today I told my senior seminar that the existence of learning styles lacks empirical evidence and likely do not exist.   These future elementary school teachers looked like they were about to riot.

Thank you! The fewer future teachers that buy into this myth, the better. There are far better things they can focus on to facilitate learning.

A friend of mine posted a response to the BASP ban on p-values that I think sums up exactly how I feel.

The easy analogy is an example all intro stat classes use about mean and median. If you are only using one measure, use the median; however, if you use many measures the mean is way more helpful. So in this case the pvalue is like the mean, completely alone it has very little use and effect size is better, but used as part of other evidence it can br very powerful.
