The world is full of good intentions! I so meant to keep up with the MTBoS missions last fall, and just couldn’t. For one thing, I don’t have a Twitter account and couldn’t figure out a good “name”. I think I have decided on one, but haven’t gotten up the courage to go sign up!

Right now, we are in the process of implementing Common Core in our high school. I will be teaching Algebra II (regular and Accelerated), Algebra III (really Pre-Cal/Trig), AP Calculus, and ACT/SAT Prep (really an Academic Competition class). My main concern is that my Algebra II students have NO common core math before now.

For the time being, I may be using this blog to keep track of some ideas for future units. This will serve as a “storage area” for me, so please bear with me if you happen to be reading this!

**Functions**: see Algebra’s Friend post about functions. It shows some ways for students to think about functions in a fun way. Several activities here to look at!

**Posters for Mathematical Practices:** Everybody is a Genius has color posters of the 8 Mathematical Practices.

**More info on mathematical practices:** Quick Tips

**2-minute drills** (Algebra’s Friend): Samples

**Projects in Math** (also some possible reading material): Algebra’s Friends – Projects in Math Class

Twitter Chat Schedule (for my spare time) – posted by Algebra’s Friend

Activity for Rational Functions – Continuous Everywhere but Differentiable Nowhere

Algebraic Expressions (Central Park problem) – dy/dan

Classroom Rules – posters from Math=Love

Function Machine stuff to look at (Math=Love)

Yes, I subscribe to a LOT of math blogs! Maybe one day, I will have something worthwhile to contribute!

Enough for tonight!
