Mr. Corey Math blog post — Wherein he shares his posters about math to show lots of different people doing it and that … yes, it’s still being done.   Lots of “statistics help us figure out important things.” I appreciate that he also stays away from “first woman to do this…” etc. He’s got links […]

The part of me that wanted explanations has won out 🙂   I redid the “forks and fourths.” I wanted the forks a little bigger, too. Now it’s time to put this aside, though… it’s free for the taking, and when (not if, when) I get a good page on my site for this I’ll […]

So I’m making these cute pictures … which would be even better if I had more time or talent 🙂 Now, if Anonymous Math Teacher wanted to do whatever with them, I’d be fine and wouldn’t care about attribution.

My Internet Saturday Morning involved a twitter request for OER for vocational programs for math… without too many answers since its Friday afternoon posting.  I linked to my spare-time-not-quite-fledglings … and hopefully this week I can make an even bigger dent on things, tho’ students will be back and they come first. I didn’t put in […]
