Three puns of that caliber in row and I’ve found the midpoint of self-loathing.
Geeze, I can’t stop. I’m on a downward…slope. Continue reading

Take an Endocrine System Siesta
Our memorization suite, Study Putty, is secreting new content all the time. We’ve squeezed our brain-glands in order to produce learning tools on the topic of the oozy ol’ endocrine system.
Here you can memorize the names and locations of the endocrine glands. You can test yourself: given certain organs, what is endocrine and what is exocrine? You can also match important endocrine hormones to the glands that chiefly produce them.
A game of gland locations. Notice only four show at once–hit “new game” for a new set.

In preparing our Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) proposal on the topic of developmental math games aimed at community college students, we’ve partnered with, and sought feedback from, several experts in math education, notably Dr. Michelle Chamberlin of the University of Wyoming. Dr. Chamberlin volunteered to write a short briefing on the theoretical and empirical support for worked example problems (click to see our first post on the topic).
What follows is Dr. Chamberlin’s sketch on the background of worked example problems, which she has kindly agreed to let us publish here.
Worked Example Problems: Theoretical and Empirical Support

Worked examples have a strong theoretical foundation in the field of cognitive science Continue reading

New Physical Chemistry Topics Added to Our Free App
This week, we have new live content available on Study Putty: amino acids. Before you go callin’ your prof “a-mean-o” for making you memorize this stuff, know we’ve got your back.
When a p chem student told us she wasn’t finding exactly what she needed on Quizlet, we decided to come swinging in to save the day. Alright, all we did was upload a spreadsheet into our software. But anyway, we can certainly help you, as we helped her, to review the following topics:

Where the action happens: at the intersection of DINOSAURS AND SPORTS. POW!
Number Munchers: Vanished About the Same Time as Dinosaurs; Yes, I Know I’m Getting Old.
“Munchers” was a series of educational games produced by MECC through the 80’s and 90’s. I passed through the digestive tract of elementary education just in time to catch classics like Number Munchers, and MECC’s more famous non-Muncher title, Oregon Trail, whenever my class took a privileged jaunt down the hall to the hi-tech and new-fangled Apple IIe computer lab.
Like anything that shaped a generation, Number Munchers is subject to copycats, whether motivated by nostalgia or by the desire to occupy the original product’s commercial niche. MECC–or the Learning Company, which acquired it–vanished from the face of the Earth in 1999, and who knows whose intellectual property that little green…uh…whatever-he-is…is. So a search for “Number Munchers” on the Internet, the App Store, or Google Play will return several…tributes, I guess we can call them if we want to be kind? If being kind bores you and you’d rather be honest, what we find is a handful of slightly-off trademark knock-offs, all of them as weak compared to the real thing as a Go-Bot was to a Transformer…I’m dating myself again aren’t I?
