Richard ============ Stack Exchange for Mathematics Educators Goes Public
https://matheducators.stackexchange.com/
On Tuesday, a new Q&A site for math teachers went live ? and over 400 educators and professors there have already answered hundreds of each others' questions at a clip above 95%.
The Mathematics Educators Stack Exchange has, after a month in development, reached public beta bubbling with questions such as
How can we help students who are very anxious about math? Should I design my exams to have timepressure or not? What are the arguments for and against learning multiplication table by heart? How to assign homework when answers are freely available or attainable online? Advantages on repeating question in student's answer What is fairly new theorem one can teach (and prove) to an undergraduate student?
Come freely ask your own question, answer a question, or "vote up" the best answers. Voters get reputation within the community, which plans to periodically hold democratic moderator elections. Especially fruitful questions, helpful answers, and other forms of participation earn badges such as "famous question," "guru," "mortarboard," "booster," and "Strunk & White."
Described as "all about getting answers ? no chitchat," this questionandanswer site requires no cost or registration. For more about the Mathematics Educators Stack Exchange, consult
