    1/8/22 My current goal is to spend at least two hours a week on the Making Math moments website, getting familiar with it and starting the online workshop. Implement as I learn and get on weekly to reflect and report on progress, perhaps make new goals.

    Finished Module one and have started Module two. I’ve tried to think how I can use my current curriculum and do a Notice and Wonder. A video would be nice. 🙂 We are studying discrete and continuous graphs in 9th, subtracting negative integers in 7th and simplifying and solving algebra equations in 8th.

      Lots of fun there. For integers, check out our mathisvisual.com site and for equations we have lots in the tasks area of this website! Have a peek!

    I just finished Module 2, though I still need to report on a lesson I’m going to modify on Monday. Lots of good ideas on how to make math lessons more engaging by withholding information. Having students engage with a notice and wonder. Ask a question that they can estimate on and then gradually give information they can improve their estimates on. Math fights are a good way to get students to notice and wonder. How can I improve my planning to incorporate these ideas? Right now with the extra caseload from my colleage that retired early, I’m planning day by day, and I have 3 classes to prepare for. Any ideas on ways to best manage my planning and improving lessons?

      That is a tough situation! For sure I’d be starting with the big ideas you’re hoping to dive into / students are to walk away with and think about what prompt would help you emerge these ideas. That is key. Doesn’t necessarily have to be fancy, but very purposeful!
