Water under the Bridge

On the way home from monitoring the NYS math test at 372K, I crossed over the beautiful, retractable Carroll Street bridge that crosses the Gowanus Canal. I saw a whole section of the ground under water. It is the area where there are pulleys that could, in theory, pull the sections of the bridge to the side should a large barge pass through. This patch of ground to the side of the actual canal is usually NOT underwater.

It reminded me of the subway tracks that were under water I wrote about in December 2010 (see “Water under the G” below).

I just finished six weeks of SWAT — Students Will Ace Testing — in preparation for the New York State mathematics test. Everyday in one of two schools, working one-on-one with targeted students. We focused on particular math topics that were discovered to be the most common topics on the tests for the past five years. I hope the students that I worked with did well.
