### Math Links for Week Ending Aug. 31st, 2018

I have been working on this post for about a year. Not because it is particularly long or complicated. Just because I have fallen in and out of it. But over the summer when I was at TMC18, @Approx_normal did a session on CODAP and so that fired me up to finish it. If you haven't seen CODAP but have used Fathom or just are looking for some dynamic ways to work with stats, then this is the resource for you. This video gives you a brief intro to using CODAP and if you follow the link to my blog post you will see many data sets all ready to import into CODAP.

And if intro stats stuff is what you are looking for then check out @Mrschz's Instagram Feed @MrsColbyMath. She's been posting pictures every day of all of the activities her and her kids are doing. Seems like she has a very active and fun class.

This is an awesome @Desmos activity for solidifying knowledge of first and second degree derivatives. Students first have to decide which of the three lines is the original function, first and second derivative. Then they use the challenge creator to create their own example for their classmates to try out. So good.

A few weeks ago I posted a video of @Stoodle's Story Collider talk about his first year teaching and it finally got published on their site as well. This week it's @MrHonner's turn to talk about the beginning of his career.
