A teacher in southern California has launched a website to
stir students into making mathematical arguments.
Agree or Disagree? freely offers twenty secondlong video
scenarios to motivate math students to "choose a side, start a
fight, justify, ask questions, ask for information." Prompts,
such as "The man's maximum height was no more than 50 feet,"
come with sets of accompanying Microsoft PowerPoint clips.

PoW taking place: math problemsolving moment of the week

"I wasn't sure that was right, so I saw if my prediction was
right by seeing if the numbers would fit with the
other equations."

 Webb, highlighted in the PreAlgebra PoW's Latest Solution

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"There has been much buzz lately because of the just released
PhotoMath app that claims to solve a math problem simply by
taking an image, and then providing a stepbystep solution.
If one actually tries this PhotoMath app, one finds that the
camera does not recognize many simple equations...."

Supervisors of Mathematics
