This is the content contained in your drop down.

There can be as little or as much contained in this dropdown as you want.

Mary had a little lamb.

In order to make this happen, you have to follow two steps.

The Steps (Read more…)

  1. First, using the “Make Animated Dropdown Text” control box, select whether the entire page will be managed by dropdowns,  or if you only want specified section of content to be a dropdown (must be contained in the code provided).
  2. Next, highlight the heading, question, or label for the drop down text and, using the text editing buttons above (“Paragraph”) make it a Heading. If you do not see the word Paragraph in the editing buttons,  you might need to click the button that looks like a little keyboand.  That toggles the display of an additional row of buttons.

Publish or Update your page or post and your dropdown will function.

For as long as anyone can remember, the “state of the art” teaching the Times Table in U.S. classrooms  has been — and, sadly, will continue to be — (1) “flash cards” (electronic or otherwise) and (2) “Skip Counting” (regrettably embraced by Common Core). Not until the indifference of our national math education “leadership” finally yields to the nation’s collective parental demands rising as “one voice” will there be a shred of hope for liberating our children from this extremely misguided visionless torpid age-old pedagogical mindset. The standard, persistent archaic claim that Skip Counting is optimal for setting the stage for fluent Division is completely bogus:  Fluent Division depends only on instantaneous recall of “multiplication facts” — be it through the standard current arduously inferior U.S. classroom/homeschool rote-memorization methods mentioned above or the vastly superior sonic mnemonic/visual mnemonic methods pioneered in 1990 by Times Table Tricks® (herein).  Skip Counting — in addition to being just that, “counting”, not “knowing” — is at the most primal level, in fact, just “rote” memory — the most inefficient method of cerebral “data acquisition”.  In this, (compared with Mnemonic Imagery, which isvastly faster to “upload”,  vastly faster to “download” ) Skip Counting proffers no advantage whatsoever (and its disadvantages are severe) in that to obtain each given Multiplication “math fact” the child must slog through a “laboriously distractive iteration process” (fraught with potential error from miscounting) drawing upon an arduously protracted “boot camp” of  repetitive rote memory practice “in search of” final inculcation (through mental “bludgeoning” repetition) — the most inefficient method for cognitive recall, both in terms of speed of acquisition (so critical for the short attention span of young children) as well as for the principal treasured objective of long-term retention.  How this “goofy” boondoggle (“Skip Counting”) became a canonized staple of our nation’s attempt to empower our children with the single most pivotal mathematics skill of their lives — namely, mastery of both (1) comprehension of purpose  and (2) instantaneous command of the “Times Table” — is one of the great historical enigmas in reflecting upon our persistent, decades-long abysmal international math pedagogical standing — a 29th-ranked, international “laughing stock” embarrassment.  The problem is with the adult’s ability to instruct (specifically, the curriculum of teaching the Times Table), NOT  the children’s ability to learn!

Math Equations

You can also use the fx editing button to insert equations.

  1. Click the fx button. A new window will open.
  2. On the left,  use the green tabs to located symbols and click them.
  3. Insert you numbers in the brackets in the code.
  4. Inspect the preview of the equation, and if it looks correct, click Insert Equation. It will now be on your page like so:
    \sqrt{78} \times  30^{2}       \sqrt{78} \times  30^{2}<br /><br /> \int_{}^{} f(x)dx  \int_{3}^{5}      f(\sigma) dx 2/3  versus 2/3 versus \frac{2}{3}

The equation is a graphic image, like a small picture. You can click and drag it to where you want it on the page. You can make it left or right justified,  or delete it.
