Description: A "math education research digest" by a former teacher, private tutor, and faculty member of Bard College's Master of Arts in Teaching program who went on to pursue his doctoral degree from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. Since its beginning, in October, 2009, the blog has expanded to become "a platform to articulate thoughts and values about math education and ... to hash out and process thoughts about teaching and learning that are inspired not only by reading but by conversations." Posts have included "Required Reading for Math Teachers I," "What's In the Way of Making Students Prove, part II," "Partial Illumination for the Chords-of-an-Ellipse Problem," "Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint," "Good Brawls and Honoring Kids' Dissatisfaction," and "Take the Tests, Decisionmakers!" See also Blum-Smith's workshops, programs, and curriculum and instruction consulting services.
