Lists for Math Teachers and Other Educators

Filed under: Problogger,Reader Feedback,Writing Assignments — Damon @ 7:16 pm

Darren at Problogger periodically gives writing assignments to his readers. This week’s assignment is to create a list. I personally like lists because it is an easy way to organize information. Lists are also useful to readers since they can visually scan the list to see if there is anything interesting.

I actually have a number of lists I’m working on and others I’ve been thinking about. Some are specifically related to teaching math. Others relate to education in general. I’ve decided to let my readers, both of you, help me decide which ones to post first. So I’ve decided to list my lists.

The following are lists that might be useful for a math teacher, home-schooler, parent or student. After reading the list please leave a comment and tell me which items you would like to see first. Also let me know if you have a different idea for a list.

1. Free online resources for math teachers. Okay this one may be a little obvious and should, perhaps, be narrowed down a little.

2. Movies you can watch in math class. There are a lot of appropriate movies for other subjects. Why not math?

3. How to get an A in math.

4. Best SAT prep materials.

5. Online sources of downloadable busywork worksheets.

6. Best puzzle sites.

7. Math teacher blogs.

8. Best comprehensive sites for math teachers.

9. Top 10 Reasons to Learn Math, as written by incoming Juniors.

10. Ways to tell what your student or child was doing on the computer before you walked into the room.

So please leave your comments about what you would like to see in a math teacher blog. (I will definitely consider them before doing what I want to anyway.)
