My Math 8 students have been exploring linear functions. These kiddos learn about rate of change and initial value in contexts where slope-intercept form reigns, leaving other linear forms to be emphasized later in Algebra 1. We’ve also landed planes … Continue reading
When Nancy tweeted her “first-day first-year big tweet“, I felt a tug at my heart for 2 reasons: Big tweet! https://t.co/U00rgMY96k — Dan Meyer (@ddmeyer) August 5, 2017 Any tips for first day of first year of teaching?!?!? #MTboS — … Continue reading
Happy New Year! This post is already late – whoops! However, I can’t pass up an opportunity to share about a few of “My Favorites”. If you haven’t heard, there’s a BlogSPLOSION happening in the Math-Twitter-Blog-O-Sphere (MTBoS) community, and you … Continue reading
