Cathy Is On Fire
If you’ve never tuned into Cathy Yenca’s blog, carve out a few hours and get plugged in. Recently, she’s been on fire with some great posts, ideas, and a plethora of Desmos activities. Here are two post recaps:
Cathy always expresses her gratitude for the #MTBoS and this post is no exception, ranging from student playlists to Explain Everything to Desmos. As I said, she’s on fire building some amazing Desmos activities. Add this link to your bookmarks and check out her List.ly.
Cathy gives us some simple tips on ways to use digital tools and student work to extend the power of NCTM’s 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions. In addition to monitoring student work, Cathy is excited to “see and analyze student work/thinking outside of class.” allowing her to see student mistakes and misconceptions. Even after 15 years of teaching she came across a new mistake. That’s exciting! I highly recommend you check out the rest of her blog post here.
