I usually mention any new material on my Math Education Page on this blog. Today’s installment: three new pages, each of which links to several others.
1. A new issue of my Math Education Newsletter, featuring links to recent blog posts, info on my summer workshops, and an update on what’s new on my Web site. (The last item is also the subject of the post you’re reading.)
If you like the newsletter, you can subscribe here. I send it out irregularly, on average every two months. I probably won’t produce another issue until September. If you want to hear from me more often, subscribe to this blog, or follow me on Twitter. (@hpicciotto)
2. Lab Gear slides, including cool animations — a resource frequently requested by participants in my workshops. (The Lab Gear is a manipulative environment for algebra. More info.)
I’m in the process of converting my Keynote presentations on the Lab Gear into a bunch of short slide shows, which you can view in a browser, and which you might use in the classroom. The first seven are ready. I will post more as I make them, but I make no promises as to when.
3. An Exponential Functions launch page for three activities: an anchor activity using dice, a mostly visual activity about exponential graphs, and a worksheet for teachers on exponential graph similarity.
(I mentioned the dice activity in a previous post on curriculum ripples.)
Well, that’s all for today.
