Wednesday night, for lack of a zoom meeting and being a “give up being a vegetable after 7:00 p.m.” for Lent, I did a draft of a video explanation of “Please Go and Bring For Me” for building multiplicative thinking, because I think it’s a brain changer. It reminds me of “letterbox lessons” for building […]

Number Line Resources

This is to go with my almost done video about how good it is to use number lines throughout curriculum, and how to make them with Powerpoint. I need to do a scripted version ’cause … saying “I’m going to Control V” should be “I’m going to paste with Control V” and that sort of […]

Okay, I *am* an optimist. I’m easily infatuated with potential. I had about a 15 minute zoom call with “UDLPartners.” They’ve got a “Name it, Frame it, Tame it” video and the plan is to have “micro PD” videos — under 3 minutes. (Yes, we already speak the same language.) So now it’s time to […]

Frontloading

Social media had a thread about “frontloading” and “backfilling” lessons, and I was trying to wrap my brain around it… and got provided a great example of it. Students are supposed to figure out the area of the shaded part of the circle. Student comes in: coudln’t figure it out last night. “I know I […]

I participated in a “hackathon” where some stuff was presented in a Zoom format, then the next three hours were spent applying that knowledge and continuing to share in that Zoom format. The folks at Lumen LEarning had us make some little questions with HP5 that could be used to support some OER out there. […]

Next steps!

So, the Illustrative Math stint is done for now.   I am hoping that they decide to do the more involved “support for a class” — but am honestly glad to have summer to keep going in my own directions. I found hashtag #indieweb  on twitter full of people who use their own websites to share […]

Jack Rotman is a developmental math maven and involved in creating clearer paths for students through college math demands.  This blog about striving to reach 100% of our students   expresses my thinking when I’m looking at the stuff that inspired my “thread” about “successes” in developmental math.   To wit:

Quality can be objective.

Quality matters, peeps. So there’s an exercise taking survey data and filling in a chart w/ percent and number of degrees on the little circle. 3/26 students had some opinion about math.   THis translates into 0.115384615… or 11.5%.   Students are to round to the nearest tenth of a percent, and to the nearest whole degree. […]

(It’s not happening yet…) I just sent this email to Power in Numbers: Have you seen https://www.geogebra.org/m/zQ7ADTWX   in geogebra?  It’s a whole BOOK for GED …  The “Isle of Mathematics” looks to have a trove of good things, and Geogebra is CC-BY … And I just saw a cool webinar (only because students aren’t here […]
