Hi all,



Most of us are about to start Finals this week and then the break.......
the long awaited break. Yeah. While you are on break, or even before then
if you have time, please take a look at a website TeachersPayTeachers.com



This website has earned teachers across the country over $15 million last
year. One teacher alone earned a million dollars. Interview link below.

Granted, most of the money and exchanges are for elementary materials,
however there is a lot for secondary and some for college. We are all
looking for innovations and a better way to teach our students. There are
some great materials on the site and many can be used and adapted for
community college students. There is lots on Algebra 1 and 2 (which is not
much different than the Intermediate and College Algebra that many of you
teach), and there is a lot of materials on Calculus and Trig also.



They say they have:

60,000+ Free Resources

350,000+ Products

1,400,000+ Registered Users

50,000,000+ Page Views/Month

$15,000,000+ Teacher Earnings





I am sure a discussion on free sharing and commercialization will come up
with this lively group. I hope so. There are many free materials also. So
many of you have done wonderfully creative things in your classes and there
are not many forums to share aside from annual regional and national
conferences. I really believe we could help each other with new creative
ways of teaching and make an impact in our classes. And maybe make a
little money without having to go through the publishers. Most items sell
for under $5 with license to use in your classes



I have actually uploaded some redesigned LiveMath Notebooks aka "applets"
which I now use with a free viewer instead of embedded in a web page (which
has a tendency to crash). I have always used them in my classes, but now I
can share them with other teachers easily. Open them up from a classroom
computer or even a thumb drive and have interactive demonstrations and
interactive graphing. My students love to explore this way and it beats a
computer version of a TI calculator - though I use that too. I have even
emailed these apps to my students who explore topics on their own time also.
Two weeks ago we worked with polar graphs and areas. They need to find the
points of intersection on their own ( I set it up to graph only), but the
visualizations are still, after all these years, great! I also uploaded TI
handouts to help teachers teach using the graphing calculator. I will add
more during break and will take requests.



I know so many of you have great ideas to share, and this may just be a
forum to do that.



Here is one article: http://mashable.com/2012/05/17/teachers-pay-teachers/
