### Math Links for Week Ending Nov. 24, 2017

When teachers create activities to share, that's where the Internet is great. I have said that a few times on this blog and I especially like when those activities are for senior math courses. Sometimes we forget that senior students need to have activities too. In this activity, @MaryBourassa has done the leg work for creating logarithmic functions by creating cards of several functions. That's the hard work. The easy bit is giving each function to groups of students and having them determine their function's equation.

A nice little fraction activity from @mathletepearce which could be used from gr1-8. Reminds me of the Fraction Talks website.

An interesting post from @ddmeyer which is essentially a call to arms in revamping the curriculum. The idea is that currently its designed with very few in mind:
"And just as the economic 1% creates systems that preserve its status – policies like the mortgage interest deduction for homeowners, discriminatory lending policies, and lower taxes on capital gains than income – through our action or inaction we create systems that preserve our status as the knowers and doers of mathematics."
