I've been writing a whole heap of #commonlisp lately, and, whilst I love it I can't help but to feel really drawn to #scheme, especially something like chicken scheme. I like that there seems to be less scheme, all in all, to need to hold in ones head, and that most schemes compile to a static binary -- whilst this is doable w/common lisp, it doesn't seem to be its normal use (maybe I'm mistaken, though?). The tooling for common lisp, though, absolute :chef's kiss:

@<prologic https://twtxt.net/user/prologic/twtxt.txt> (re learning lisp) I defo recommend at leaast dipping a toe in. I write JS all day for work, but learning some lisp/scheme totally made JS click for me. Similarly, learning some forth made memory allocation/mgmt in C make a HEAP more sense, too -- and now I do a lot of stack based scripting in lisp, lol. Common Lisp is *HUGE* so a lot to learn, and I find most schemes to be fiddly, with questionable tooling, but https://janet-lang.org/ is pretty groovy, and if you are familiar w/any C, or C like languages it is pretty quick to pick up (although, it is weird to look like a lisp but to be totally void of true lists...)

2 months ago

eli_oat

Interested in learning Common Lisp? The majority of tutorials I've run across throw you into emacs to get started...the hiccup there being that emacs is, whilst v powerful, a big thing that needs to be learned in and of itself. This makes Common Lisp a wee bit harder to dive in to. My recommendation is to skip emacs until you are a bit cozier with Common Lisp itself. For editor/repl integration I think Sublime Text with the lispindent and SublimeREPL packages is a solid starting place.

does anyone have recommendations for free, no-fuss wireframing tool? I've used figma (bloated) and balsamiq (fine, but devours my computer) -- both are totally workable, but clunky for pulling something simple togther. I usually get frustrated and just build the wires in HTML/CSS...which sort of defeats the whole reason for wireframing

Resolving the intuitive conflict that appears around conservation of liquid in containers of different sizes, Papert doesn't teach kids how to calculate volume, but introduces personified agents for heuristics like A(width) and A(height), and then a third A(geom). But the third isn't computational, it's resolving conflict. It's rooted in existing intellectual systems for resolving conflict between changes in width and height. In conflict resolution, it produces a heuristic that is more able to comprehend what happens when fluid is moved between containers. When a child is given access to this simulation of their own mind, they become masters of their own learning.

Piaget emphasized the importance of growth in a one's ability to reflect on their own thinking. The paradox is that this growth must be created from one's current intellectual system.

"When asked, as a youth, what question would guide his scientific life, McCulloch answered: "What is a man so made that he can understand number and what is number so made that a man can understand it?""

"For most people, nothing is more natural than that the most advanced ideas in mathematics should be inaccessible to children. From the perspective I took from Piaget, we would expect to find connections. So we set out to find some. But finding the connections did not simply mean inventing a new kind of clever, "motivating" pedagogy. It meant a research agenda that included separating what was most powerful in the idea of differential from the accidents of inaccessible formalisms. The goal was then to connect these scientifically fundamental structures with psychologically powerful ones. And of course these were the ideas that underlay the Turtle circle, the physics microworlds, and the touch-sensor Turtle."

"So, in my own thinking I have placed a greater emphasis on two dimensions implicit but not elaborated in Piaget's own work: an interest in intellectual structures that could develop as opposed to those that actually at present do develop in the child, and the design of learning environments that are resonant with them." - Piaget focused on how children developed, Papert focused on how to guide that development using this knowledge.

This Bourbaki school is extremely curious. They were staunchely against diagrams and intuition. The whole endeavour was to create a rigorous written document that could systematically tackle calculus questions by learners...

3 months ago

amorris.ca

"The Bourbaki school's unification of mathematics is achieved by seeing more complex structures, such as arithmetic, as combinations of simpler structures of which the most important are the three mother structures. This school had no intention of making a theory of learning. They intended their structural analysis to be a technical tool for mathematicians to use in their day-to-day work. But the theory of mother structures is a theory of learning. It is a theory of how number is learnable." - Papert

"The bicycle without a rider balances perfectly well. With a novice rider it will fall. This is because the novice has the wrong intuitions about balancing and freezes the position of the bicycle so that its own corrective mechanism cannot work freely. Thus learning to ride does not mean learning to balance, it means learning not to unbalance, learning not to interfere."

"We will consider learning to ride a bicycle. If we did not know better riding a bicycle would seem to be a really remarkable thing. What makes it possible? One could pursue this question by studying the rider to find out what special attributes (speed of reaction, complexity of brain functioning, intensity of motivation) contribute to his performance. This inquiry, interesting though it might be, is irrelevant to the real solution to the problem."

What do we say to a child who has made such a beautiful theory? "That's great thinking, Johnny, but the theory is wrong"

3 months ago

amorris.ca

Piaget asked preschool children, "What makes the wind?" Very few said, "I don't know." Most children gave their own personal theories, such as, "The trees made the wind by waving their branches." This theory, although wrong, gives good evidence for highly developed skill in theory building. It can be tested against empirical fact. Indeed there is a strong correlation between the presence of wind and the waving of tree branches. And children can perform an experiment that makes their causal connection quite plausible.

'As they puzzled together the child had a revelation: "Do you mean," he said, "that you really don't know how to fix it?" The child did not yet know how to say it, but what had been revealed to him was that he and the teacher had been engaged together in a research project. The incident is poignant. It speaks of all the times this child entered into teachers' games of "let's do that together" all the while knowing that the collaboration was a fiction. Discovery cannot be a setup; invention cannot be scheduled.'
