Math Educators

Anybody have a different word to use for ‘quiz?’ The kids can do the HW with me/on their own- but as soon as you pass out a quiz- everyone freezes. 🙄 I get test anxiety, seriously.

I like to call it a survey. A “let’s gather some info” about what we know.

It’s probably less of test anxiety and more that they weren’t working independently before the test. They were either following your guided instruction, working with a friend, getting help, or even cheating. (My kids tell me they use photo math and airdrop answers to each other daily!) then, during the quiz, when it’s just them, they realize they’ve never actually done it themselves before.

At what point is it too late to switch to a career in programming? I studied supply chain management in college, but more and more I find myself wishing I had done computer science. I have been working as a business analyst for almost a year now and am curious if that is a realistic career jump. I have no programming experience, but it just seems way more glamorous than supply chain consulting. Curious what your guys thoughts are/if anyone has made a similar jump.
