Description: An online discussion community for those "passionate about math teaching" who want to "foster deeper collective thinking and exchange of ideas about mathematics teaching.... in a way that goes beyond coffee room conversations." Dating back to 2012, posts have included "Mazes (and topology?) for elementary school students," "Cross Multiply to compare fractions," "Response to Diane Ravitch's posting on why she cannot support the Common Core State Standards," "Explaining 0 divided by 0," "To Secretary Duncan: policies should support teaching profession, not test-based accountability," "Praise Versus Encouragement in the Mathematics Classroom," "Disappearing Tricks with the Common Core," "Why we shouldn't write 50 ÷ 8 = 6 R 2," and "Geometric Explanation of Triangular Numbers — Can it Be Extended?" and "Bundle & Unbundle: Do it either way!" and "'speed drills' and 'timed exercises': helpful or counterproductive?" Discussants have included Sybilla Beckmann, William McCallum, Raymond Johnson, Ashli Black, and Tad Watanabe.
