In class on Tuesday, we worked on stretching and shrinking problems, asking ourselves what questions can we ask to solve our problem. I think the strategy we learned to stretch a problem with the five why questions is a great approach, and could be used really effectively in news reporting.
Sitting outside for class on Tuesday was really refreshing. During our group discussion about what gifts we can bring to our project, we found that many of us feel inspired by nature.
I really liked the How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci excerpt. I always thought that I was more right-brained than left brained, but after reading the words of Professor Sperry, “Our education system, as well as science in general, tends to neglect the non-verbal form of intellect. What is comes down to is that modern society discriminates against the right hemisphere,” I thought I’d test myself.
