Good Reads and Some Other Math Fun

Skipping through my feed from The Old Reader, with the customary nuggets of wonder and brilliance from Solve My Maths and Don Steward, I saw several posts from Algebra's Friend, Beth Ferguson, about South by Southwest, apparently the enviable Ed Event of the Week (my title!).  Beth blogged daily about the sessions she attended, including hearing Linda Darling-Hammond, Sal Khan, Shiza Shahid, mentor to Malala Yousafzai, and a workshop I REALLY wish I had attended, “Becoming Badass in 6 Steps.”  
On Day 3 of the conference, Beth went to an extended session with NPR_Ed, and reading through this post landed me at the NPR website, and a current feature, 50 Great Teachers.  Needless to say, there are myriad stories for you to comb through on this website – lots of inspiration, food for thought, opportunities to comment – well worth a visit.
One last recommendation this week:  John Spencer’s post Seven Works of Fiction that Have Changed Me as a Teacher.  Besides enjoying John’s list (especially the interesting juxtaposition of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Brave New World), I have been reflecting on putting together my own list.  What would be on yours?  Is this a topic for #slowmathchat?
Cheers – Spring is JUST around the corner!


The #MTBoS continues to shine as a beacon of light for all teachers. If you’re new to the Math Twittersphere, please allow Mike Weirnicki to introduce you to a Robert Kaplinsky’s classic, the In-N-Out Burger.
Grading and providing feedback can be extremely time consuming but well worth it on the path of student growth.  In Mike’s latest post, he make ​instant feedback a possibility and what’s great about this feedback is that it’s all student lead.  “Not only was the feedback helpful to groups as they returned to their seats, it was positive.  Students were excited to see what their peers wrote about their work.”

​Ahhhh...​The mighty power of the Post-it!
