- A good math acceleration program from another college in same district as mine, getting students from arithmetic to the algebra needed for statistics in one semester. We are beginning to implement this program too.
- Some research on 'chunking'. Although the article doesn't make the connection, chunking helps make math easier - when the basics become automatic, your brain gets to focus on higher level tasks.
- An interesting curriculum for pre-algebra and algebra, at middle school and high school level.
- Lesson on population growth using guesses and World Bank data.

*I Hope This Old Train...* - How big is a billion? from Rebecka Peterson
- Giant 4D Buckyball sculture
- Bridges of Konigsberg video, from the
*Plus Math*blog - In beginning algebra, I like asking students to figure out whether a big or small pizza is a better deal. Here's some data, from the
