Our whole department will be at Boston. We are lucky enough to have grant money to pay for our travel. Our college barely has enough money to pay for salaries.
I wanted to let you know about an algebra lesson that I have created and found a lot of success with. I was actually able to upload the files for the lesson onto my blog through a widget. Since your blog is one that I frequent (and link to), I thought I'd share...
The project is a grass growing project that links concepts of ecology to algebra, and engages my students more than any other lesson I have created. I'm very happy to be able to share it with everyone [who reads my blog and teaches algebra] :)
Students love watching their grass grow and taking care of it, so much so that they forget to complain about the algebra! I hope you check it out!
Math Mama is Sue VanHattum, a community college math teacher interested in all levels of math learning, and the mama of a young son. I entered the blogging world as I began work on an anthology about learning math. Contact me at mathanthologyeditor on gmail etc.

Yeah, I didn't even ask my college to reimburse me.
ReplyDeleteIt would be fun to have a bloggers' meetup.
I'm looking forward to seeing Maria Andersen in action.
