Meet me at NYSCATE!

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

I’m excited to be presenting at NYSCATE on Tuesday morning, the last session of the conference. Even more exciting, my session is receiving a lot of attention; looks like we’ll have a packed house!

I’ll be showing off Eureka, Common Core, Inc.’s excellent interface for the New York State math curriculum. I’ll also be demonstrating a number of apps and a few websites that can be useful in conjunction with common core math. Hope to see you there, but if not, check here for links to handouts and apps!

Also, the reason for the long quiet on my blog is that I’ve been busy writing curriculum for A Story of Units, the New York elementary math curriculum. Now that this is winding to a close, I’ll have more time for other things, like this website. Let me know if I can help you!
