Summer. For students and teachers, that means a break from books, papers, tests, deadlines, and the stress of school. In this episode of KUT's podcast "Higher Ed," Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger and KUT's Jennifer Stayton talk about the benefits of that break, as well as the advantages of keeping the brain at least a little busy during the summer months.
Everybody needs a break from the usual routine — but too much of even a good thing can be bad. Ed and Jennifer balance the benefits of a breather from the classroom with the importance of keeping the brain occupied over the summer. Click here to hear about some ways to do that, including sharing what happens during the school year with family and friends over the summer. You'll also get the solution to the most recent math puzzler. A hint: think small.
