Math Festival, TEDx Talk, Fraction Talks

So much is coming up!

First, Seattle’s Julia Robinson Math Festival is this Sunday. It’s a festival celebrating collaborative, beautiful, non-competitive mathematics. If you’re interested in signing your child up (4th grade or older), there’s still time! You can learn more about the festival here.

Second, my TEDx Talk, Five Principles of Extraordinary Math Teaching, if finally out. I’d love to know what you think of it.

And third, I’ve been having a blast exploring the new website fractiontalks.com. This is a tremendous resource, a kind of one-stop-shopping experience to find fraction images to use with students of all ranges of experience. For example, what fraction of each shape below is green/yellow/blue/etc.?

More coming soon, including a new Kickstarter game for 3-8 year-old kids. Stay tuned!
