                 SPEAK AT TWITTER MATH CAMP 2018


 The conference organizers of Twitter Math Camp 2018 (TMC18)
 invite math teachers to brainstorm what they want to hear at
 this seventh annual gathering "by teachers, for teachers."

 These topic suggestions have already been made: 

    - Finding connections/pathways in math content from 
      elementary to high school
    - Examining problem sets from Exeter Math or PCMI
    - Using metacognition
    - Exploring formative assessment to move student 
      learning forward
    - Discussing best practices for leading PD

 Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) boots up Monday,
 December 4.

 Self-guided tutorials include nearly 80 that emphasize math,
 such as these:

    - Frozen's Anna and Elsa in an exploration of snowflakes

    - Wonder Woman, which draws on sequences, variables, loops, 
      and conditionals to help Diana train against her opponents
    - Bloons Trigonometry Defense
    - Coders Strike Back: an introduction to bot programming


 Advocating "an hour of code for every student," CSEdWeek
