Kyle McFarlin (Underlying Blog) Burritos & Sundresses It's summertime and most of my motivation, to put it bluntly, is focused on Chipotle, Mountain Dew and girls. It reminds me of that episode of Friends when someone asks Joey what he'd rather give up, food or women? I still have no answer, all I see is a pretty lady in a sundress handing me a Chipotle burrito with steak and guacamole, telling me I won the race. 15 Useful Online Mind Mapping and Brainstorming Tools Concept mapping and Mind mapping software are used to create diagrams of relationships between concepts, ideas or other pieces of information.

PISA This years focus is mathematics with an additional test in creative thinking. The new PISA 2021 mathematics framework was recently launched. Preparations for this test are underway with participants from 36 OECD members and likely 50+ non-members involved. The PISA 2024 innovative domain, Learning in the Digital World, aims to measure students’ ability to engage in self-regulated learning while using digital tools.

I was reading comments to my reddit submission of the many oxidation states of carbon, and Aa1979 asked if the functional groups could be arranged logically according to actual chemical transformations.

I pointed the commenter to a post by James over at Master Organic Chemistry where he has a picture of a whiteboard-mind map of most of the reactions in a standard undergrad text. Very impressive. Feeling crazy, and deciding to put of lab work I should be doinghaving nothing to do, I expanded on James’ mind map and tried to get as many reactions as I could on one map.
