|Math investigations, challenges, problems of the day, and standardized test practice that emphasize the development of conceptual understanding in mathematics. Marain's blog, which dates back December of 2006, also features dialogue on issues in mathematics education with a focus on standards, assessment, and pedagogy primarily at the 7-12 level through AP Calculus. Posts have included "Thoughts on Stay-at-Home Moms vs Preschool," "Reply to Euclidean geometry/Proof Question on Math," "A Special Case of the Random Triangle Problem," "Singapore Math Part III (Info from the 'Source')," "Multiple Representations (Rule of 4) in Algebra 2," "A Geometry Tribute to Cinco de Mayo," "Thank You, Prof. Escalante," "Pi-Squared over 6: The Algebraic Genius of Euler," "Using WarmUps in Middle School/HS to Develop Thinking and Review/Apply Skills," and "How Much Factoring in 1st Year Algebra?" Marain recently retired after 30 years in math education and supervision, having served as an Advanced Placement Calculus (BC) teacher, K-5 Chair of New Jersey Math Content Standards and Curriculum Frameworks, and member of Math Item Review Committee for New Jersey High School Proficiency Assessment.|
