With Earth Day just around the corner, I began thinking, "What sort of extraordinary things could I create from ordinary things which might otherwise be thrown away?"  So I created a free resource entitled Trash to Treasure.  It is an eight page handout that features clever ideas, fun and engaging mini-lessons in addition to cute and easy-to-construct crafts made from recycled or common, everyday items. Find out how to get it for free at:

Among teachers, extra credit work has its supporters and its critics, and there are a large number of "undecideds" as well. The range of viewpoints is understandable because the whats, when, whys and hows of extra-credit assignments really matter. Many instructors can't determine whether extra credit is a benefit or a liability, whether it is a point of contention or a headache. In other words, often it is a controversial practice. Find out more about extra credit at: http://gofigurewithscipi.blogspot.com/2016/03/is-extra-credit-worthwhile-option.html

How many sides does a circle have? Believe it or not, this was a question asked by a primary teacher on the Teachers Pay Teachers forum. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but in retrospect, I was stunned. Therefore, I decided this topic would make a great blog post. Read my response at:

I enjoy teaching Geometry because there are so many concrete ways to show the students what you mean. For instance, when introducing angles, (before using protractors) I use my fingers, coffee filters (when ironed, they make a perfect circle), interlocking plastic plates, the clock, etc. to demonstrate what the various angles look like. Find out how I use some of these examples at: http://gofigurewithscipi.blogspot.com/
