Day 121: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Today I gave a presentation called “Fostering a Math Practices Mindset” in which the participants explored the CCSS Standards of Mathematics Practices followed by examples of how I’ve tried to incorporate these practices with and without technology.
I sort of felt like the children’s book: Fortunately, Unfortunately.Unfortunately, the technology available to me during the session didn’t work so well, so I limped along with slow internet and missing applications on the loaner computer. Fortunately, the participants were great with lots of enthusiasm and energy, even for a late afternoon session. I know they got a lot out of it ‘cuz they said so! Lesson learned…bring your own computer!
And tomorrow is the “Pi Day of the Century” so we are to have pie on 3:14.15 at 9:27.
