5 x 3 與 3 x 5

「一枝鉛筆五元,如果買三枝,請問一共多少錢?」這是一題學習乘法時幾乎每個人都曾碰到過的數學題,無論中英文,反正題目讀完乘一乘答案就出來了,不是嗎?沒想到我的朋友陪孩子寫這麼簡單的數學功課,還寫出了問題。 一天她打電話給我,問我說:「你記不記得我們小學的時候,老師有特別交代過,如果一枝筆五元,這個 『五』 就應該放在前面,所以當要寫出算式的時候,得寫 5 x 3,如果寫 3 x 5 就是錯的?」我說:「嗯…好像有這麼一回事。

兒子升上十一年級時,中文學校的同班同學全都上中文課超過十年了,正常美國學校的功課愈來愈忙不說,學生也都沒有興趣再繼續上中文課,於是紛紛成為學校的助教,星期日有空就來幫忙做點事,同時高中也要求學生拿一些校外義工的時數,算是一舉兩得吧。 一天碰到一位老師聊了聊,她跟我說:

Advice to High-School Graduates: ‘You Are Not Special’ (source: The Atlantic)

..... [article excerpt] ...... Today’s adults grew up with asphalt playgrounds, playing outside unsupervised until dinner. But today’s kids are strapped in car seats from birth, and McCollough sees his students slowly losing autonomy. “The kids now seem so directed and scheduled—they're tutored and coached and the degree to which parents are involved in their lives is … well, one notices,” he said. “They’re getting very little experience conducting their own lives and living with the consequences of their decisions. When they stumble, their parents step in, denying them very important formative experiences.”
