Math Munch: Ambassador From the Mathematical Internet to Your Classroom LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Join one of the lead authors behind the Math Munch blog (www.mathmunch.org) to how the blog works, what content exists on it, and how people can use it in their classrooms. Math Munch posts cover a broad range of mathematical topics, many of which relate to Common Core State Standards. Math Munch is designed to highlight mathematicians who engage in the practices that we, as teachers, wish to teach our students in ways that students can relate to.

Anna will share some of the vision for the site and motivations behind why we write it and walk people through some of its features. We'll also explore the site, find things you like and then share and discuss them. As a group, you'll also spend time brainstorming ways to integrate Math Munch into middle school classrooms and sharing new ideas for how it can be utilized and grow as a valued resource.

BYOD: Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop, tablet or iPad with them to this session.
