Author:Elizabeth Statmore
Description: Blog by a San Francisco high school teacher who came to the classroom by way of "many years as an entrepreneur and executive in Silicon Valley." Statmore left industry after seeing "too many good, smart people who were missing out on wonderful career opportunities because they had given up on math too soon or because they never mastered the arts of communicating and collaborating effectively." Posts, which date back to July, 2010, have included "The Rough Guide to the SBG Rubric"; "Favorite Tweets #16 — PCMI Envy edition"; "Tikkun olam, cheesemonkey-style, or why I became a public school teacher"; "NCTM Standard 7: fostering 'positive dispositions toward mathematics'"; "Rational Expressions Treasure Hunt (or, Intrinsic Motivation for the Intrinsically Unmotivat-able Bits)"; "Thoughts On Making Math Tasks 'Stickier'"; "Intro to Quadratics — from 'drab' to 'fab' (or at least, to something less drab)"; "Reading aloud in math class — it's a developmental thing"; "Using Exeter problems as an intro to algebra tiles"; "Noticing and Wondering as a practice with my 6th graders"; "And *THIS* is why I love the MathTwitterBlogosphere, part 573 — Infinite Tangents interviews Lisa Henry, Part 1"; "Growth Mindset Quote of the Week"; "On the importance of scaffolding within the zone of proximal development"; "40 days and nights of standardized testing: a reflection"; "The deeper wisdom of the body in math class"; "Impromptu Twitter master class on homework strategies"; and "Chords and Secants and Tangents, oh my!"
