I was thrilled that this year the Math Department has decided to move fully on to Microsoft Teams to provide Math Extra Help.  While we’ll continue to provide face-to-face drop-in help during lunch, students in any course can post a question on the Math & CS Team, in whichever channel… Continue Reading Help, (Teams), I need somebody…

It often takes folks a bit to get used to OneNote because there are no “files” — there are only pages, like a Binder, and everything is placed on a page.  So, when students do their work and present it for feedback, it’s on a page.  What’s great is you… Continue Reading Collaborating, without having to work

Now, as a math teacher, “differentiation of product” means something completely different… but for this purpose it means — don’t expect every student to respond to your request for evidence of understanding with the same learning artefact.This is well stolen from Vanderbilt University (https://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/module/di/cresource/q2/p07/ ) Now, even as a first… Continue Reading Differentiation of Product

Sooo… we do everything in OneNote. I mean, everything (see here: Link). So the problem was, we were having OneNotes for everything and it just got to be too much.  Instead, we set up a School OneNote ClassNotebook for administrative use.  Every teacher is a “student” in the ClassNotebook (except… Continue Reading Our Faculty OneNote

Growing up we had a huge book of poetry in the house, and I remember reading it regularly.  One that I remember is from Longfellow … and it applies to this situation.I have the pleasure of working with the folks at the Park City Mathematics Institute this summer. What happens… Continue Reading When she was bad, she was horrid…

Since organization is important when visiting an incredibly packed conference like the annual National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), I thought I would share my approach to that using OneNote.  You can visit it here: http://tinyurl.com/nctm18onenoteHow did I do it?  First, I visited http://www.onenote.com and signed in with my… Continue Reading NCTM 2018 Annual Conference — and OneNote

So the shape of things to come, I suppose. We just finished up with March Break and we send a Report Card (marks & comments) home with the students as they go on holiday.  As they were coming back for the last term, I thought I would do a temperature… Continue Reading Course Evaluations via AI… “I’m sorry Dave. I’m afraid that’s what I think”

Sigh. It’s tough to disagree with Fawn Nguyen. (http://fawnnguyen.com/maybe-less-tech-in-math-and-school/) She wrote, in particular: I want them talking and interacting more than anything! Learning mathematics is a social endeavor. Here’s my perennial classroom routine, “Turn and talk with your neighbor.” I want to bring back the arts of speaking and listening,… Continue Reading Maybe More Better Tech in Math & School?
