The Final Mission – MTBoS #8

The challenge this week is a sort of meta-sharing challenge. Sam has asked us to share about what/how we share.

One of my roles here in my school is that I am the Math Dept Chair. I also chair a technology committee here. One of the really joys of diving into the MTBoS community is that I am finding resources to share with my colleagues. I send out multiple emails per week sharing ideas that I have run across.

For example, in the last few weeks, here are some of the links I have sent out

To a tech committee colleague – http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2013/11/inquiry-learning-ideas-for-math-and-science-with-ipads

To the whole tech committee – http://www.thethinkingstick.com/why-i-still-want-ms-and-hs-to-have-a-laptop/

To my Algebra I and Algebra II teachers – http://rationalexpressions.blogspot.com/2013/11/exponents-without-repeated.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ratexp+%28Rational+Expressions%29

To our STEM director – http://emergentmath.com/2013/10/30/a-problem-based-learning-starter-kit

To my Calculus team – http://www.epsilon-delta.org/2013/10/chain-rule-getting-better.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FkgQwd+%28Epsilon-Delta%29

To my Geometry team –  http://mathwithbaddrawings.com/2013/10/16/two-column-proofs-that-two-column-proofs-are-terrible/

These are just a few examples of how I’ve been inspired to share some of the wealth of riches I’ve found on the web through the MTBoS community.

      In our upper school we have 5 full time math folks and 7 sections split among four others. Our middle school team is 4 teachers and one part-timer.
      I’m also in the habit of pestering colleagues at previous schools with these emails.
