"Hacker doesn’t deny the virtues of differential equations for budding engineers, but he argues that the way we teach math to millions of other students is deeply flawed and morally misguided. It alienates and fails many"That is the premiss of this article about why we need to fix math by redefining it. Thanks to @mathletepearce for this one.

So this kind of going along (a bit) with the above article about changing math education. The difference is that the impetus for this report was some Fox news person complaining about how they need to get rid of algebra cuz it's hard. Short sighted, of course, and even though they conclude that they shouldn't, their reasons aren't all good. But perhaps it's still a conversation starter.

A fun video from @standupmaths where he tries to flip alternating heads and tails 10 times in a row. A great video where you can have your students guess how many takes he had to do in order to finally get 10 in a row. In fact, he has a contest to see how many times he flipped the coins to get 10 in a row. If you hurry, perhaps you can put a guess in.
