Awesome Internetting from the last month.
New Blog Subscriptions
- Tracy Zager has been one of my favorite math voices on Twitter this school year and she’s now blogging. She’s also recently announced a fight with breast cancer and has requested that we “Please help me remember that I have thinking and ideas to share, and am involved in a world bigger than this right now.”
- Annie Fetter’s work at the Math Forum has always been impressive and it’s a total oversight I hadn’t realized she writes a blog until now.
- Tim McCaffrey and I share a lot of the same enthusiasms. He helps districts run lesson studies around three-act tasks and just started blogging about it.
- Matt Bury had positively invaluable commentary during last month’s adaptive learning discussions.
- Dan Burf, a/k/a Quadrant Dan, is a new teacher who has been using my old, old lessons, which is kind of fun to watch.
- Amy Roediger, whose writing on Classkick was extremely useful.
- Julie Wright is full of promise.
- Just Mathness is full of promise.
