Math Links for Week Ending Dec 8th, 2017

This past summer I had the pleasure of going to my first Twitter Math Camp. As it turns out becoming a participant at TMC is quite the feat. It regularly fills up quickly. And one way that you can get a spot is to be one of the presenters. They are always looking for new presenters and one of them could be you. And to help convince you I suggest you read recent blog posts from @samjshah or @marybourassa. They are great places to start if you are thinking of presenting but need a push or some ideas. And then when you are ready, fill in the Google form to submit your proposal.

I like this problem that @FawnpNguyen highlighted on her blog recently:

Specifically I like the way she used a visual solution rather than an algebraic solution. Take a look

We've been doing a lot of work in our school board on building thinking classrooms. So this post from @BenOrlin is quite timely. It's hard to get your kids to think and he suggest three strategies to make it happen. Check the post out for the full story.
