Later Today: Math Circle Online - Please join us!

Please join me for  Math Circles: Low Tech, High Engagement - Good for Classroom Use?  at 2pm Eastern time / 11am Pacific time, today.

I'll conduct a math circle for the first part of the session. (If you haven't seen the problem before, you get to participate. If you have seen it before, you get to watch a math circle in action.) Then I'll host a discussion about how it went, how it might go if done in a class, and what topics in the curriculum might lend themselves to math circle format. We may also want to discuss what other low-tech ideas folks have, and how we can deeply engage students through both low and high tech methods.

  2. Sue, here is more on the pattern issue I brought up during your event. Thank you so much for organizing it! So thought-provoking!

  3. Sorry I missed it! I just found out about it now (Sunday)!

  4. Will there be a recording of this event for those that missed it. I wish I could have attended.


  5. The recording is up:

  6. Thanks so much for sharing yesterday. It was very insightful. I am works to not give my students answer but have them figure out more. I am still working on which concepts are better to explore and which are better just to tell. It is also even more complex when the curriculum is tied to a high stakes test.
