Math Links for Week Ending Jun. 14th, 2018

 I saw this Tweet from @mathycathy talking about @saravanderwerf's post about Stand & Talks but my take away was this site I hadn't heard of before called On this site are images to start a conversation with students. I have added it to my Best of the Web tab on this blog.

Wondering if teaching through tasks is something you can do? Fear not, @mathletepearce has you covered. Going from teaching through examples with a few tasks at the end of a unit to using tasks for the teaching (with consolidation). Take a look at all the insights on his post.

What a nice and simple Geogebra sketch from @markus_geogebra for kids to play around with and learn the connections between position. velocity and acceleration. Thanks to @mathstechnology for pointing this out.

A couple of new podcasts to listen to from @BBCMoreorLess. One on whether we should call it math or maths (starts at 17:43) and the other does a good job of looking at some problems with statistics in a critical way, including a bit on estimating the number of wizards in the UK in the Harry Potter series. And then a new episode of the 10 Minute Teacher Podcast with @geraldaungst talking about his book the Five Principles of the Modern Math Classroom

A pretty sweet little Desmos enhancement when manipulating graphs. Now an easy way to zoom in on just one axis using the shift key. Thanks to @jocedage for pointing this one out.

There is a new (to me) solving equations app that is intriguing but perhaps does too much to re enforce poor math habits. In his latest post @ddmeyer uses it to talk about what he looks for in technology and don't forget to look at Graspable Math's response to his post here.

Another great animated tessellation done with Desmos from @sumdumthum

What a great and rich pattern. So many different curricula can be looked at with this pattern (depending on how you look at it)
