About

ugly xmas sweatshirtI am a public high school math teacher in Brooklyn, now in my 10th year (1o?? 10???) of teaching.   I teach in an academically, economically and ethnically diverse school of approximately 4,000 students, and my program always includes Algebra 2/Trigonometry, Geometry or both.   I also co-advise the school’s Math Club, the Midwood Mathletes, and am a Math for America Master Teacher. When I am not teaching, planning, or thinking about teaching and planning, I am reading, quilting, or talking to and about my highly talented children (not necessarily in that order).

      Amy – I already follow your blog! I am not going to Twitter Math Camp – not this year, anyway. I am attending the Math & Technology Conference at Exeter Academy the last week of June, going on a quilting retreat on the Appalachian Trail the last week of July, and will be on Lake Dunmore in Vermont for 2 weeks in August. It’s enough away time for one summer. But I am enjoying dipping my toe in the Math TwitterBlogoSphere, and looking forward to being a further part of the community. Thanks for the welcome!

    Given that my adopted moniker in Lisp circles is His Kennyness, I approve your title.

    Now please tell me you require your students to address you as “Your Mathness”. 🙂

    Hey Ms Wendy,

    Hope you’re having a great day!

    I’m doing an expert roundup on my site and I think many new Math teachers using education technology products in their classroom like me would love to know your answer to this question :

    If you could only use 3 Education technology tools/apps/sites for your teaching which 3 tools would you choose? e.g. WolframAlpha, KhanAcademy and Inside Mathematics.

    Thanks in advance!

    As soon as I’m done compiling the results, I would inform and link back to your blog.

    Thank you!
    Ishan

      Ishan – sounds cool! I only scratch the surface of what’s available in my classroom. My 2 faves are Desmos and Geogebra. For my 3rd, right now the tool I use most is deltamath.com, although I am beginning to incorporate ck12.org, which may take the lead.
