Currently October with a Treat!

It's October already ...

In beautiful central Texas, our morning was cool and our midday is mild!  Loving the open windows and fresh breezes!

Most of the Currently entries are self explanatory.  Notice the "trick or treat" ... I have a real treat for you!  I'm loving my students' blog posts!  So far the requirement has been to write just one post ... about any topic that is related to math in some way.  I invite you to check out all of our blogs - use this link as a jumping off place.

I'm also highlighting a few specific posts today ... check these out ...
Is a Member Card Really Worth It
Math News
Cantor's Diagonal Proof
Bohemian Mathsody
Math in Gaming
Euler's Sonnet
Shhh….Seven Super Secret Study Tips

There are many more ... such talented young men and women!  Love my students!!


  1. Beth - these are great! The student blogging project keeps moving up on my to-do list thanks to you and others who have shared this. And I think it is so empowering to the students. Kudos to you and them! - Wendy M

    1. Wendy - thanks! I really like kidbog as a site to use ... very easy to get started! This first six weeks students had to post just once ... and I didn't grade it. They are using the checklist I created to self-assess. Next six weeks (starts Monday) students are asked to blog twice and comment 3 times in the marking period. I plan to grade 1 blog post per student (160 students). I am blown away by some of their interests, topics, creativity and research. It's a lot of fun!

  2. Ahhh...I love a Saturday with nothing to do! :) I'm going to check out your student blogs because our principal wants us to start one. Glad to have an example to follow!

    And these pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies will cure your fall dessert treat, for sure! ;)
