    Are you suggesting a collaborative group?

    I’m not even sure where I’ll be teaching next year, much less what – This should be good to keep my head in the game.

    Signed up, even though just a nerd mom who wants to spread the math bug to the kiddos. (The AI-Class 2 years ago was a revelation! Love this way to learn, and keep learning)

    Thanks for the heads up. I registered today. Excited to attend. It will be helpful with my masters program I am in as well. Liz

    Already signed up! And, I like Mr. K’s idea of a collaborative group. Maybe a weekly Twitter chat facilitated via a hash-tag? #learnmath115 ?

    Signed up. Thanks for mentioning it. You have no idea how excited I am – Elephant in the Classroom is one of my favourite teaching books. So the opportunity to learn from Ms Boaler – Wow!!

    So…are you really taking the course?…because earlier today I posted a link to your tedx in one of my responses. You are truly inspirational! Thanks for your amazing insight!

    I’m in. Just haven’t found a moment to dig into the first sessions. This next week I’ll get caught up. Thanks for linking me into the conversation until then, Elizabeth.

    I’m signed up and engaged in the course. I just went through almost all of the first unit and it is very interesting and stimulating! I think that if you enjoy teaching math or learn about other ways to approach math, this is the course for you.

    Math is like Wine, not Beer,
    Please sip, not gulp!

    This course was recommended during my CPM week long training. I signed up and look forward to watching the videos and joining the discussion.

    This course was recommended to me during my week long CPM training. I signed up and look forward to watching the videos and joining the discussion. I’ll come back to this thread and talk about how it went.

    Loving the course. Really eye opening and research based. So many implications for teachers and parents and opportunities for making things happen in the classroom that can have a real impact.

    This will change the way I teach and also change the messages I give the students. This course was trans-formative!

    I agree . . .course was very thought-provoking.
