Links versus Real Writing

I used to share links more often. I used to write substantive blog posts more often, too. Since I've been writing less, I haven't been comfortable sharing lots of links. Didn't want this blog to descend into just a link-share. But it would be helpful to me to have them here. So maybe I'll start sharing my almost daily finds, even if it's not exciting for y'all.

These were the tabs I've kept open - some for weeks - hoping to figure out how to use some, how to find time to really process others.


  1. I *always* appreciate link shares. The internet is very big and very fast, and it's so hard to know what's really worth checking out. Sometimes I don't end up reading a piece carefully until two or three people whose taste I trust shares them.

    Thank you for sharing these!

  2. Thanks for the share. The Deborah Ball article, from Elementary School Journal in 1993, was a great blast from the past. The first sentence of the article, "Over the past few years, school mathematics has been the target of a wave of reform recommendations" is as true today as it was 20 years ago. I think Mathematical Horizon is a good metaphor. We keep moving toward the horizon - sometimes with backward steps along the way - and it doesn't seem to get any closer. Hmmm . . .
