|Blog by a community college math teacher "interested in hard questions about teaching." Posts, which date back to July, 2009, have included "Wump hats," "An unnoticed rule for number language," "The end of word problems," "Cubeyness," "Cardinal and ordinal numbers," "More on fraction division (you know you love it!)," "Place value and the Lattice Algorithm (or A Simple Task, Years in the Making)," "A five-year old explores infinite loops," "Further adventures in Kindergarten fractions," "Important Ootsie-related news," a series entitled "Questions from middle schoolers," and "Can a number be bigger than anything you can count?" and "How many degrees in a polygon?" Danielson came to college faculty by way of graduate studies that included work on the revision of the Connected Mathematics (CMP) materials after teaching seventh and eighth grade math for six years.
