@Desmos SCORE. Nothing like enabling students to create and share problems for leading them to own the mathematics.

@Jstevens009 @pegcagle Intrigued with this idea, also how students' perception of authority differs in other subjects

@giohio @AllenMath Had college prof who argued that parallel lines intersect at infinity. Can say same about x^2 and x^2-1.

@cmmteach Definitely 👍 look forward to it!


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?

TI-84 Programs:

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