Function Art!
Students used the seven functions we have studied and few others they researched on their own to create art.  We used Desmos as our platform.  They did a great job creating favorite scenes, characters, and objects!

Table War
We are reviewing attributes of rational functions.  The details require more memory work ... more understanding what part of the rational function discloses what details.  So we did some speed dating for routine work.  And today we played Table War. I have ...

Smile File entry!
This morning I opened my school email ... from a student ...  First I have to say, THANK YOU for introducing me to this! I absolutely love playing around with changing variables. So much so that I've already made something. https://www.desmos.com/ calculato...

#SXSWEdu Day 4 ... the end of the line
Sad to see the end of SXSWEdu ... love the energy, ideas, and conversations! Today I heard Shiza Shahid, mentor to Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Peace Prize recipient.  Shiza told how her story intersected with Malala's story.  Shiza explained that her goal is to...

#SXSWEdu Day 2
Can I just say that there are so many choices at SXSWEdu!  Usually I love choices but today it felt overwhelming! SXSWEdu is different than many conferences I've attended.  I have attended ASCD, NCTM, and NAGC national conferences.  There you find strands f...

Electrifying and Intriguing!
Yesterday was one of those rare days in our classroom ... an odd day out ... a day where I could choose to explore topics outside of our typical planned curriculum. First up, I wanted to learn about Kahoot.  So I found a public game that had questions suita...

Whetting the interest ...
How do you whet students' appetite for upcoming activities?  Do you prefer to just spring it on them?  Or do you put a teaser out there?  Just curious.  Most often I don't use a teaser ... so I'm trying out that idea this week. In two weeks we will wrap up ...

Speed Dating with Rational Functions
We are learning about Rational Functions.  In our last class we took notes on how to identify attributes ... discontinuities (asymptotes and holes) and intercepts as well as domain and range.  It was a lot ... and I knew students needed repeated practice. S...

#SXSWEdu Day 3
By Day 3, my head was spinning!  And still I attended 2 excellent "extended" sessions! The first one was three hours with NPR_Ed .  They are doing a series on 50 Great Teachers .  The fun part of the story was that one of their choices is a colleague.  I've...

Random thoughts ... connected learning ... Our tech coach sent out an email about an opportunity to win a free pass to SXSWEDU ... I ignored it the first day because my brain was tired.  And I couldn't think of connections.  BUT I wanted to go to that confe...
