Standards Based Grading in Mathematics Tuesday, October 16th 9PM ET

Shawn Cornally

Shawn Cornally (@ThinkThankThunk and http://101studiostreet.com/wordpress/) shares about Standards Based Grading in mathematics: “It turns out that the way we grade students is about an order of magnitude more important than anyone previously thought. When you start to tinker with grading, it moves all of the other dials wildly, pedagogy, practice, interest, and class time all have to be rethought. Rethinking all of that is super mega fun, so come to Global Math Dept on Oct 16, and let’s come up with some lessons that aren’t boring.”

My Favorite First Tuesdays at #globalmath

The My Favorite format has proven very popular with the math teacher crowd. So popular that I have people lining up and asking to present their favorites (where were you folks last week when I was begging for presenters? sheesh! joking, I love y’all!).

Presenting…

My Favorite First Tuesdays

The first Tuesday of every month is My Favorite night. Sign up to present a 5-10 minute topic. Only one rule: it’s gotta be something you LOVE. Favorites include classroom management (Two nice things! from @misscalcul8), games (Trasketball stolen from @k8nowak by @approx_normal), or tech (TI NSpire quick tips by @mathteacher24)…you name it!

I can hear you asking, “How do I participate?” No really, you gotta stop reading out loud.

Just complete this form and I’ll be in touch via email to plan details.

 

Next My Favorite is Nov 6. Be thinking of ideas!

My Favorite Things, October 2nd

Origami and Other Math Art

Ash

On Tuesday, Sept 25, Ashli Black (@mythagon) brings 
an artistic POV to your math class. She'll walk us
through her history with art/math projects, including 
origami and show how you can use origami with math
support classes. Bonus! Ashli will also share a
modular origami project she's used for over 5 years. 

RSVP in advance or show up here on Tuesday (9pm ET)

Statistics and the Common Core

  

  
Nervous about the statistics standards in the 
common core? Looking to put some excitement into your data 
analysis units? Teaching regular/AP Statistics and looking to try 
something new (or just find SOMEONE to collaborate with)?  
Hedge (@approx_normal) and Shelli (@druinok) are
going to share some of their favorite statistics labs and discuss how
they can be used in any K-12 classroom. Statistics is their jam and
they want you to love it too.

RSVP in advance or show up here on Tuesday (9pm ET)

Using Geogebra

New topic time! (This one looks really good — have you used GeoGebra?)

On September 4th, the  #globalmath meeting will feature Dave Radcliffe (@daveinstpaul) who will give a brief introduction to the scripting feature in GeoGebra (http://www.geogebra.org/4.0. This feature allows you to create highly interactive applets that respond to events. Attendees will also share ideas about how the scripting feature can be used for mathematics instruction.

Exeter Problem Sets

Glenn Waddell, Jr.The Exeter Math department creates some of the best curricula available to teachers. Taking what they do very well in problem solving is key to making sense of and persevering in problems.  (CCSS Mathematical Practice Standard 1) In addition, they have an active, hands on curriculum that is available in both PDF and Word formats to help teachers explore math with their learners. (link “available in both PDF and Word formats” to http://www.exeter.edu/academics/72_6539.aspx). On August 28th, at 9PM ET, Glenn Waddell will be talking about Exeter problem sets and how they can be used in the classroom. You can sign up at Big Marker.
