What I Notice and Wonder about Teaching Like a Champion | teaching/math/culture
Last night, Chris Robinson shared an experience with an administrator who observed his math classroom. He had been doing an activity called Noticing and Wondering with his students, something that Max Ray of the Math Forum has written about extensively. Noticing and wondering is a great discussion starter. You share a mathematical object or situation with…

Day 130: Paper Folding | Quadrant Dan
Algebra explored the expansion of (a + b)² today. Across 100 students, none of them were able to correctly expand (x + 3)² coming into the day. We plugged x = 2 into different expansions. Most students had 13, some had 25. Everyone agreed that 25 was spot on, but couldn't come up with an explanation as to…

Music Puzzles | Solve My Maths
So during one of my many, many random thoughts, something occurred to me. As a big fan of maths puzzles (remember this post?) I pondered the idea of transforming a maths puzzle into a music one. After all, anyone who knows almost nothing about music knows that it's pretty much maths with sound. The majority…

iPad Use, Years Later — Infinite Sums
I've had iPads in the classroom since the fall of 2012. It started with 4
and now I have a pile of 25. What world changing things are we doing these
days?

Honestly, no one would build an ad campaign around it. My primary workflow
is rather dull.

I've played around with exporting student work and sharing photos. It
served a purpose but at my current scale isn't practical. I tried
collecting data in spreadsheets and sharing it, too many kids had nothing
to do. I tried have them analyze a video. I tried having them model
equations to pictures. In each case the time investment ratio was just out
of whack. There were simpler ways to accomplish the same thing. Despite how
easy it was to gather stuff via Google Drive, I could never find other uses
for it. Despite how easy it was to have them try and teach themselves, it
was just glorified handouts. I like for them to keep records of everything
we do. I still love paper and pencil, marker and glue. Can we make that
better?
