Made 4 Math Monday: Boring Info Sheet OUT, Fun Brochure IN

on August 13, 2012

First.  Post.  Ever.

Well at least for my teacher blog.  HoppeNinjaMath.com is actually for my students.  I swear, they chose the website name!

I don’t have a lot of time to write, because I spend so much time reading all the other math teacher blogs.  Luckily it has become a lot easier lately, thanks to Dan Meyer.  I just took a 4-day course at Stanford that he taught, and one of the many things I learned about was Google Reader.  Yay!

Thank you Sarah at Awilda’s Daughter for the brochure idea.  I used Microsoft Publisher to make mine.

Thank you Sarah at Everybody is a Genius for the idea of using the standards in Wordle.  I spent hours playing around with the California State Algebra Standards in that program.

Thank you MissCalcul8 and @mathtastrophe for the Star Wars rubric idea.
