## #WODB Nearpod Warm-Up #VariablesBothSides

If you haven’t used Which One Doesn’t Belong? with students, you might be missing out on some pretty awesome dialogue. The idea that there isn’t just one cut-and-dry answer makes justifying one’s choice a safe challenge. Students have been solving … Continue reading

## You Don’t Teach

Okay, let’s be clear. I *DO* teach. A lot. But students don’t often know how to articulate that *how* I’m trying to teach may differ, at times, from some of their past math-class experiences. They might not know exactly how … Continue reading

## Gettin’ Into The Groove Hodge-Podge… Featuring Classkick

I can hear the announcer at our high school’s football game as I type on my iMac here at home. So nice to be getting settled in to a “new” house that is closer in to the city, our schools, … Continue reading

## #10GoodThings

It’s been fun getting to (virtually) know more and more math Tweeps in the #MTBoS. One such bud, Jon Orr, tagged me to compose a #10GoodThings post to reflect on “good things” that are happening with my little corner of the … Continue reading

## Nearpod Homework Reports: Worth the 40+ page PDF

I had a field day with data after assigning several Nearpod lessons using the “homework” feature this week. What’s great about the homework feature is that students can take on the lesson and embedded activities and assessments at their own pace. … Continue reading

## 2015 First Day Back

I spent the first half of my day at a high school math textbook vendor fair. Having a substitute felt awkward – it was tough to NOT be in my classroom to welcome students back and crack corny jokes about how … Continue reading

## Book Creator Student Math Authors: Take 2

Last May, my students took Book Creator for a test drive. As the school year came to a close, student-authored review eBooks seemed like a worthwhile task to try. Students learned a lot about working cooperatively, using new apps, and presenting mathematics … Continue reading
