Mission #4: Resources

  1. Explore some websites to use with your students.
  2. Visit some websites for your own professional growth.
  3. Comment on this post about what else you’ve discovered.
The MathTwitterBlogosphere is filled with all sorts of amazing resources. You’ve certainly run across some of them as you’ve browsed blogs and Twitter, but there are always still more to find. Here are a few of our favorites. If you discover others in your explorations please leave them in the comments!
At the NCTM booth we had informational pages on many resources. Check out the static pages and then follow the links below to the interactive version!
These are some sites that are fun for you and your students to engage with:
Here’s a site to share with parents to help them engage their kids in mathematical conversation and play: Talking Math With Your Kids.
Analyze some Math Mistakes teachers have submitted, work with other commenters to pinpoint what the student’s misunderstanding is and brainstorm how to help the student correct the mistake. Learn and share how to help students avoid some of their mistakes caused by lack of conceptual development at Nix the Tricks.
When you’re frustrated with all the mistakes students make, remind yourself why you teach by reading several teachers’ One Good Thing from each day of school. In all your spare time, refill your enthusiasm repository to overflowing by attending Twitter Math Camp.
Are you a first year teacher? Here are some letters to you: Letter to a New Teacher. This is just one of many Math Themed Memes, coined #matheme that people have participated in.
On Tuesday nights the MTBoS community holds Global Math Department meetings via webinar. It’s the department and PD you’ve always wished for. You can attend in your pajamas.
If you’d like a window inside a variety of math classrooms, in two minute clips, check out Mathagogy. And here’s another window inside an even wider variety of (mostly math) classrooms, in full-day recaps: A Day in the Life of a Teacher.
Thanks for exploring with us and keep on sharing!
