This week is our annual Getting to Know Connected Mathematics workshop on the campus of Michigan State University.
I’m meeting a large number of teachers this week and I expect more than a few of them will find their way here.
In that spirit, the following is a CMP teachers’ guide to the past couple of years on this blog.
Curriculum and standards
The world’s most complicated launch (For Frogs, Fleas and Painted Cubes Problem 2.1)
A risky context that we rejected (but interesting nonetheless)
Geometry and measurement strand
Cubeyness (or Overthinking Filling and Wrapping)
Wump hats I (Stretching and Shrinking)
Wump hats II (Stretching and Shrinking)
How many degrees in a polygon? (Shapes and Designs)
Division of fractions (Bits and Pieces II)
Questions from middle schoolers
This has been an ongoing series of questions and answers from a CMP class in Alaska. This link takes you to the full collection.
Juvenile middle school humor
Come on. You know you couldn’t last a year in middle school if you didn’t find this stuff funny yourself.
CMP teachers…Got anything else you want addressed here? Let me know in the comments or by email; I’ll be glad to get to it.
