I’ve spent much of the last several months writing a math curriculum and text book. My students, many of whom have a very low education level, struggle with concepts that we are taught from a very young age. Conversions from fractions to decimals to percents is particularly tricky. So I’ve been trying to come up with ways to simplify these ideas and explain them in a conversational tone. Mastering this basic math is vital to their success as medics.

Yesterday I sent the fruit of my labor to a translator, so hopefully in two weeks I’ll have a Karen textbook to work from when the new school year at Jungle School of Medicine.
