Math Monday - Free Resources

Welcome and thank you for stopping by Math Monday, 
I hope you will consider joining the conversation.

This is going to be a short and quick post with my Slice of Life writing challenge participation this month.  I enjoy and love buying professional books and resources.  I am lucky enough to be able to afford to do it within reason and small doses.  I have a collection in all content areas in a HUGE TBR pile.  However, I've been thinking lately about teachers who don't want to spend their personal money and I can respect that or don't have the financial means to buy their own books when the resources provided aren't in alignment with your philosophy or you need something different for the students sitting in front of you and the curriculum you are to teach.  I've been experimenting with resources that are FREE and very worthy of my time.  

Engage New York Math Modules - EngageNY.org


Georgia Standards Frameworks - Georgiastandards.org


Three things I enjoy and love about each FREE resource.
1.  Students are actively engaged with math

2.  Problem solving is embedded.
                   
3.  There are opportunities for students to explain and write about mathematics.

Math Monday - Math Enthusiast Twitter List



Welcome and thank you for stopping by Math Monday, 
I hope you will consider joining the conversation.


I spent some time over winter break organizing my twitter list and decided my very weak math list needed some love and support.  I retitled it Math Enthusiast, which just sounds fun.  These are individuals I have found that primarily share and converse about  the teaching of mathematics.  My twitter feed was literacy top heavy and still is but I'm happy to share today my Math Enthusiast list with you.  I hope you will leave a comment and add suggestions for this list.  If you are on twitter you can subscribe to my list and watch it grow.  You can also look at those I follow and add them to your own list.
