You may be aware of #slowmathchat moderated masterfully by Michael Fenton. But on twitter the math chats are never confined to a single hashtag! Over the last couple weeks, two twitter conversations have been on-going and polemic. David Wees began the first exchange:
The video David is referring to is here. What do you think about it? Get involved in the conversation here.
The second discourse was initiated by Michael Pershan:
Michael is referring to two famous psychologists who are adding to the educational field with their research in two areas of how the brain works. Angela Duckworth is most well-known for her research around the concept of grit. Carol Dweck is the mastermind behind the mindset theory. Do you have strong thoughts about how these two psychology theories affect your math class? Tell Michael and the rest of the #MTBoS here.
Students aren't the only ones that should be constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others.
