September Remainders

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.

New Twitter Follows

Multimedia Math

Great Tweets

  1. 1. Dan Burf is using your old lessons? So I guess it’s kind of like a Dan Re-Burf. *rimshot*

    2. You’re only just now following @MrHonner? That surprises me. Enjoy.

  2. OMG!!!! It’s thanks to you I got started on the MTBoS (I read your blog with great fascination after seeing your TED talk, and at some point you posted info about the MTBoS that I saved & came back to this summer after I took a tech based learning class), so this is so nice!

    Glad you’re coming to Portland next week, too. I got my breakfast ticket early.
