This Week at Global Math

What is the MTBoS and How Do I Join?  
Presented by Dylan Kane.

Who is the MTBoS? How big is it? How good are we at integrating new math teachers? Do we matter at NCTM? Come to hear some data and analysis, made possible by the MTBoS booth at this year’s NCTM, and to share your ideas and experiences about what this community is all about.
Sign-up here.  
Last Week: Favorites from NCTM.  View recording here.  

Speaking of the Math-Twitter-Blogosphere...

Have you checked out Explore Mtbos lately?  Since Boston, the folks over there have revved up the site and posted some new weekly challenges.  Suitable for the beginner and veteran alike.  Tons of fun will be had by all.  
This week's mission focuses on Twitter.  So get out there and create some hashtags!

More Blogging Amazeballs:

Not being able to attend NCTM Boston, a hop, skip and jump away from Brooklyn was pretty frustrating, and I avoided Twitter somewhat during the conference, so envious was I.  There is no dearth of recaps online since the conference, so I have an even better idea of what I missed.  (Please forgive my injured tone, dear readers.)   But Anna Blinstein at BorschtwithAnna gave such a well-organized recounting of what she gleaned, and what she plans to do with those new ideas and insights, that I began making my own to-do list from her post.  Go check it out.
Another great recap of a virtual meeting was Elizabeth Statmore’s post on An Impromptu Master Class on Homework.  Borne of a teacher’s call for help and input, the ever articulate Cheesemonkey gives a detailed account of her strategies and rationale regarding homework, with great references and strategies – more food for thought.
The MTBoS is wonderful for the articulate and honest reflections shared by its members.  I am always humbled by people’s courage and personal generosity.  This month, @sophgermain’s Things That Scare MeMegan Hayes-Golding’s Why Am I So Gay? and Megan Schmidt’s Secret Teacher Problems are must reads.  And shares.
