Quick programming note: our Loop-de-Loop contest ends 10/6 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.
New Blog Subscriptions
- David Sladkey created a slick lesson in Desmos asking students to make their way around a maze using functions. Looking forward to more of that.
- Bill Hinkley taught with Zan Armstrong, one of Desmos’ crackerjack new hires. He seems to post once every couple of months with insightful, illustrated dispatches from his classroom.
- Kelly Zinck and Erick Lee co-author a blog (+1 fun). They’re a couple of math consultant co-workers (+1 fun) out of Halifax which is in Canada (+1 fun) who share both wacky and well-worn activities for math students (+1 fun). That’s four fun points. Easy call.
- I don’t know who writes the blog Algeotrigcal but they had me at “Algeotrigcal.”
- Ruth Eichholtz blogs thoughtfully about math education and technology. She has a particular post I must share with you later. Loved it. Best use of Classkick I’ve encountered so far. Wouldn’t dream of spoiling it.
- Matthew Oldridge tangles with the same crowd of traditionalists on Twitter that I tangle with only he does it with more patience and good humor. I was surprised I hadn’t already subscribed, frankly.
- Selling B2E. Gotta take care of business now.
New Twitter Follows
- Dylan Wiliam. Perhaps you have heard of him.
Commenters I Wish Had A Blog / Twitter Account / Zine / Etc.
- Bret Giliand, who gave me a good razzing last month. Somebody hook him up!

Thanks you so much for featuring Ruth’s Blog in your September round-up. Not only did you MAKE HER DAY/WEEK/MONTH with your kind and thoughtful words but as a thought leader in the math community you have inspired her through your validation.
As a facilitator of the Cohort 21 learning community of which Ruth is a part of this is the kind of authentic moment we hope for. No doubt Ruth will continue to share with more passion and spark because of this new fuel.

After emerging from several months of first-year-teacher survival mode (they say this will get better the second year…do I believe them?), I decided to get back to the blog, which is when I discovered this post. Made my day (and it was already a good day)! Thanks, Dan
