Math Links for Week Ending Jun. 14th, 2019

Featured Links
A couple of new releases from First, the Algebra Tiles app which has been in beta for a while is finally out. Check out all the tips and tricks here. The other new app is the representation match game with fractions. The nice thing about this game is that you can play it on any device (since it's built with HTML5). And if electronic matching games are not your thing, then they have also made available printable cards to physically play the match. You can get those here

Do you have a story about a time when you used some teaching method that, as you look back, you may be embarrassed about now? We all started somewhere and did things that makes us cringe now. To me, that's called progression. Well, if you are up for it, @Mr_stadel is looking for you for his new podcast "Math Confessions". It's coming out in the fall but if you would like to be part of it, you can make your math confession, just contact Andrew.
