By coincidence, this week's 'Math Forum Internet News' had two items that relate directly to your question. Here is an excerpt with links:

Videos of Doing and Teaching Math

Max recently added to his growing annotated compilation of videos that "deepen inquiry into teaching math, and student inquiry into learning math."

Math education highlight reels include:

children inventing methods for doing double-digit arithmetic
a kid "thinking SO HARD about making change"
illustrations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Mathematical Practices
podcasting combined with virtual manipulatives as a form of one-on-one assessment
Suzanne, the Forum's Director of Professional Development, problem-solving with middle-school students in Philadelphia

Want to talk about videos that feature math teachers and students? Have a comment for our Professional Collaboration Facilitator? Post them on Max's blog.

His first book is in press now. Published by Heinemann, Powerful Problem Solving: Activities for Sense-Making with the Mathematical Practices hits shelves next month. Check out some of the early reviews:

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"High school students are the shyest noticers and wonderers, and have a harder time suspending their disbelief than, say, third graders. Here are some tips for noticing and wondering with high school students...."

Webinar on Common Core Math

Want to see where mobile learning meets the CCSS? and create authentic real-world activities that teach math? Register for the free online seminar "Mobilize Mathematics: Mobile Learning Meets the Common Core."

Taking place Thursday, 12 September, this webinar continues a series run by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and the Mathlanding project of Maryland Public Television (MPT).
