Since today’s the Summer Solstice, I hope you’re officially enjoying your break. I won’t rub it in that our students’ last day of school annually is prior to Memorial Day. Whether you’re just getting used to that alarm clock NOT … Continue reading
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
Several years ago, I attended an EdCamp ATX event here in Austin. One of the sessions featured formative assessment strategies, and a particular task struck me. I wish I remembered her name, and I wish I still had the resource … Continue reading

With new TEKS in tow, my 7th graders taking 8th grade math have been studying proportional and non-proportional linear relationships (wow, right?). The progression has been a refreshing, concept-based study of LOTS of scenarios featuring “constant rates of change” represented in … Continue reading
Dan Meyer provided our district’s math department with two days of PD in June. I liked the homework he assigned to us, and I’m in the process of merging his idea with a problem-solving plan for a longer-term mini-project of sorts. … Continue reading
My (former) students are probably still sleeping on this fine Sunday morning, and here I am, thinking about the first day of school in August. It’s not entirely my fault. I just had two days of PD with (THE) Dan … Continue reading
