There are powerful connections we can make between math, reading, and writing for our students which can help strengthen student understanding.Joe Schwartzhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02304083254248927187noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1907702537884089718.post-674210318899112942015-07-06T07:02:11.363-07:002015-07-06T07:02:11.363-07:00"What do you notice?

I can't help but think of how many times I wasted minutes (which quickly turn into hours) using "math-message-like" work. On average, we get about an hour of math time each day and spending 10 or so minutes on can be extremely counterproductive in the grand scheme of things.<br />Meaningful Math Openers: Getting the Most Out of Every Lesson by Joe Schwartz<br />Kind of has a nice ring to it, eh?Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08525114028095675402noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1907702537884089718.post-8401732777208810422014-10-13T12:07:51.755-07:002014-10-13T12:07:51.755-07:00This is empowering our struggling learners and it ...This is empowering our struggling learners and it is amazing to see.

You should also know that I'm using your Noticing and Wondering Ignite video as the basis for discussion in our school math PLC meeting later this month. My hope is to get teachers to experiment more with the Math Message. Yes, there will always be those who are pencil-less, but maybe there will be a little more motivation to find one!Joe Schwartzhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02304083254248927187noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1907702537884089718.post-27196439485393397312014-10-08T08:47:04.692-07:002014-10-08T08:47:04.692-07:00I love the idea of turning the Math Message into a...I love the idea of turning the Math Message into a Noticing and Wondering activity! That takes that content to a whole new level, and would be way more interesting.

I'm not sure how wide-spread this practice is, but it's Interesting to know that it's used in college. I'll check out Project Euler and Numberphile.

(It's math for non-technical majors.) I call it the "Math Minute" and it's just a little something to get our brains warmed up and may or may not be directly related to that day's topic.<br />For example, in one session, we tried to figure out how many ways you can arrange a deck of fifty two playing cards. This got us talking about permutations, factorials and scientific notation. <br />Good sources of inspiration are Project Euler and the Numberphile channel on YouTube.<br />Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03360812636147297815noreply@blogger.com
