The Myth of the Bell Curve

The Myth of the Bell Curve | Potpourri | Scoop.it
“There is a long standing belief in business that people performance follows the Bell Curve (also called the Normal Distribution). This belief has been embedded in many business practices: performance appraisals, compensation models, and even how we get graded in school. (Remember "grading by the curve?")”Research shows that this statistical model, while easy to understand, does not accurately reflect the way people perform. As a result, HR departments and business leaders inadvertently create agonizing problems with employee performance and happiness.“”

Some of these toys I could easily get at yardsales or online. The connection between toys that inspired engineers/scientists gives me hope that if I use similar items in my classroom, maybe I can motivate and inspire my students towards fields in math as well.

Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...
