In case you haven’t noticed, I need to branch out more in my reading-I have “only” about 100 math blogs in my reader. My goal is to start clicking on some unknown blogs using  @MTBoS_Blogbot, but of course I can’t read everything that’s out there!  So if you’d like to nominate a post, you can either post on your own blog OR use this handy nomination form and I will put it in my next post!

Greta, @g_brgmn, is someone I want to hang out with more. I love her idea about using the “math about me” numbers later in the year to make kids think she has mind-reading powers! And then she confessed that she’s a font/quote lover like me!

Seriously, have I mentioned how brilliant Dave (@Dave_Sabol) is for starting the “How I Teach” series? Reading Anna’s (@TypeAMathLand) answers makes me want to go back and change mine because hers were so darn good!

Man, Sara Vaughn (@Vaughn_trapped) knocked the wind out of my sails with this post about being intentional. I’ve totally used up my share of miracles, too, Sara. Thanks for being so honest and giving me a much-needed wake-up call!

Two Saras this week! Love the 10 Things Not to Ask Me about Your Calculator from Sara Van Der Werf (@saravdwerf). I’m thinking I need to make one for Google Classroom!

Glenn (@gwaddellnvhs) is going to be so happy that he’s won TWO #SOTW! My goal this year is to find where I’m supposed to be.

Speaking of which, I probably would have starred Desmos’s (@desmos) post announcing their first cohort of Desmos fellows even if my name wasn’t on there. So many MTBoSers! So many rock stars!

Beth (@algebrasfriend) makes me want to DO ALL THE LABS for function exploration. Hey, wait a second…I do have this problem solving course with no set curriculum. That means I get to DO ALL THE LABS!!

Hey, are you following @SheaSerrano on twitter? He’s totally not-math-related but his tweets always make me happy. If you want to be happy as well, you should read his post (“article”) about the US Gymnastics team.

Wait, I bet you didn’t read it, did you? FINE. I will still give you the link from there that is a slow-mo breakdown of Aly’s first tumbling pass. (even though you don’t deserve it since you didn’t go read the original article) (unless you did go read it, in which case you deserve to watch the video again)

You know what else you probably don’t deserve? The best damn news story I’ve read in a while.

But you may have had a long week and maybe have the Sunday Stinkies/Monday Moanings, so you probably deserve some of my favorite tweets!

This is a GREAT cheatsheet for first-time twitter chatters!

And finally, everything about this picture makes me happy. 🙂

  1. […] I have earned my second Star of the Week from Meg Craig! […]

  2. Awesome Meg! Love this post series and love Dave Sobel’s series. And the picture of Pam…well, I am so, so happy you posted so I saw it and didn’t miss it! Happy Week

    • I know, right? Pam’s pants are just sooooo happy! Hope you have a great week as well!

  3. Thanks for the post! Gonna cost me another hour or so to browse through all those ideas, but I know it’s worth it. 🙂

    Btw, I just went through the list of Desmos fellows and your name does appear on
    the list. Have I missed anything here?

    • Ha, I was trying to say that I’m so gracious, I would link to the Desmos list even if I hadn’t made it.
      (that is a complete lie, though, I’m totally not that gracious.)

      Hope you had an enjoyable hour collecting ideas! 🙂

      • Hold on, you DID say that. Need to brush up on my grammar. Conditional clauses type II, bring it on! 🙂

        • Haha, I just like to blame things on summer/back-to-school brain (depending on your timing…) 😉 I’m just impressed you read everything AND read the whole list of desmos names! 🙂
