7:38 PM | The Common Core for Mathematics in a Nutshell
By Christopher DanielsonIf everything you, like many Americans, know about Common Core State Standards (CCSS) comes from social media, you likely think children are being taught to subtract by adding, to write letters to Jack instead of learning their facts, and to draw endless series of dots. (If you got none of those refer- ences, a web search will quickly bring you up to speed.) As with most urban legends, the commonly voiced concerns about the CCSS begin with a kernel of truth and spin into […]

3:55 PM | Want less traffic? Build fewer roads!
Josefina Alvarez A mathematical "paradox" explains why more roads don't necessarily mean fewer traffic jams. If you want fewer traffic jams, it might be worth considering to remove a few roads. Don't believe it? Here are a few examples. The Cheonggyencheon stream after the restauration. Image: stari4ek.read more

3:55 PM | Out-of-the-Box Baseball Gets an Upgrade and Inspires My First Project-Based Math Experience
 Replica of Musial’s disk created in Geometer’s Sketchpad In his 8/4/15 blog Dan Meyer summarizes everything he has learned about modeling. Here's a paragraph from that blog: "Modeling asks students a) to take the world and turn it into mathematical structures, then b) to operate on those mathematical structures, and then c) to take the results of those operations and turn them back into the world. That entire cycle is some of the most challenging, exhilarating, democratic work […]
