PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week
"It was neat to see all the different ways that people thought
about this problem, and all the successful solutions.
Congratulations to the nine students whose work is shown here.

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour
"I was wondering if any schools out there make an effort to
prevent students from using notes or programs added to their
calculators. Do any of you have a process in place, or do you
simply warn the kids not to cheat and assume they are

Alan Selby has added a new section to his site, entitled
"Secondary Mathematics for Ages 11+, a Practical Approach."
"Secondary Mathematics" provides a coherent guide to technical
innovations that simplify the learning and teaching of
arithmetic and number theory practices, elementary and
advanced algebra, elementary and advanced geometry. The new
section ends with two calculus previews with a description of
a light calculus course, more descriptive than deductive, aimed
at introducing the key ideas in differential and integral
calculus. The appendix "Calculus with Proofs for the Keen or
Gifted" describes how to reform calculus.
To better reflect his site's extent and intent, Selby has also
re-christened his site — originally called "Appetizers and
Lessons for Mathematics and Reason," and now "Logic and
Mathematics Skill & Concept Development."
