The Gift of Math Ed
I’ve decided to follow Geoff’s lead, and help give the gift of Math Ed by listing some of my favorite blog posts from the past year. Geoff, and others in the comments, have listed some pretty solid posts, so I’m simply adding more.
Here goes, in no particular order:
- Bowman’s My 3 Favorite Whiteboarding Modes – this is the post that finally got me to take the trip to Lowes.
- David’s What if we gave them the answers? – I love any post that challenges my perspective on assessment.
- Bryan’s The Trouble With Assessment – same deal: any new perspective on assessment strikes a chord with me, and this pushed me to attempt my own version of portfolio assessments.
- Geoff’s We must get rid of Algebra because Roger C. Schank can’t behave at parties, knows weird mathematicians – this made me laugh surprisingly hard considering the fairly serious nature of the topic.
- Kate’s Hours of Entertainment – another reminder for me that there just might be a way to make anything fun.
- Michael’s White Paper on Problem Solving: The Why – I appreciated this series of posts, with the exception of the cats – I don’t like cats.
- Nat’s Bike Trail Task – I thought this was a cool idea, but the main reason I’m including it is because – and I might be wrong here – I think it was the first blog post I ever commented on.
- And although it’s not math-specific, I genuinely appreciated David’s The Best Thing; at the time, it really hit home.
There you have it. Happy Holidays.
