VIDEOS OF DOING AND TEACHING MATH

http://mathforum.org/blogs/max/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:

"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...."

PERFECTION

http://perfectiongame.net/

This elegant game for iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, and Ubuntu
challenges players to take convex and concave polygonal shapes,
and cut them into the outlines indicated.

Perfection's $0.99 mobile app scored "Indie Game of the Year"
honors at the 2013 Philadelphia Geek Awards earlier this month.
Gaming reviews describe Perfection as "eschewing much of the
trappings of modern gaming to be a pure, untouched package" and
as "Fruit Ninja for smart people."

Perfection's designer, Greg Lobanov, is an undergraduate at
Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts & Design:
