Math Links for Week Ending Mar. 3rd, 2017

Recently @pgliljedahl spoke to teachers in the Ottawa area and I saw some recaps show up on Twitter. For a detailed recap, don't miss @mathtans' play by play of the whole talk. I specifically like the beginning with the descriptions of the slow start with using vertical surfaces. Also @Laura_Wheeler managed a couple of sketchnotes too. We have been working on making thinking classrooms down here to so it was great to see these resources.

I love it when you go deep on a topic. In this case it's optimizing cans from @DataGenetics. With some of the data here you could probably connect it to grade 9 optimization but they go deeper and take it all the way to the calculus level. And as a bonus, here's a discussion of reasons why packaging is the way it is. Thanks to Janet Jacques for this one.

If you are in Ontario you've heard of the Renewed Math Strategy. Well, they have a new website for all kinds of math goodies. Check it out.

Having done a couple of Ignites myself, I am always happy to highlight a good one. It's from a couple of years ago but I hadn't seen it before. I like this one from @robertkaplinsky on productive struggle. It's always hard to get everything you want said when the slides are flying by at 15s a pop but he does a good job of highlighting the important points. I have used the bench press analogy myself many times.

And when that video came up, another of my favourite speakers did. Here is @Marian_Small from the same session

A new three act task from @mathletepearce using a great image to provoke questions. Good for multiplication and proportional reasoning.
