One of my favorite GGB applets of all time. What other formulas can be understood in this way? #mtbos t.co/wFMzubxAlj

@JSchwartz10a @Estimation180 Great post Joe. I often comment at conferences and workshops that it's Estimation 180, not Answer-Getting 180.

We ought not be evaluating teachers on how well their *best* lesson goes, but on how they respond when a lesson "fails."

Let’s debate… in comments below

1)  Should students be able to earn Math credit from Computer Science courses?

2)  Should students be able to earn Foreign Language credit for learning a Programming language?

3)  To what extent should programming be incorporated into ordinary math courses?

4)  #MTBoS: Who are good teachers, organizations, and others worth following in this space?


Classroom Resources:

TI-84 Programs:

TI Codes – great resources for teachers and for students     @TICalculators
