Description: Blog by a secondary math teacher in the Minneapolis Public Schools for whom the phrase arbitrarily close "encapsulates the things I can control, the things I cannot, the impossibility of this craft [of teaching], and the beauty of the exploration despite the challenges." Posts, which date back to July, 2016, have included "An Ode to Sara VanDerWerf & the Power of Building Each Other Up"; "Math Identities, Part II: Math Teacher"; "Multiplying is Not a Prerequisite for Fractals"; "The Mathematicians Project: Mathematicians Are Not Just White Dudes"; "How to: Fabric Hexaflexagons"; "Math On A Stick, Part II: Stepping Stones, Parent Talk, Teacher Lessons Learned ∓ Mathematical Depth"; and "On How I (currently) Use MTBoS."
