"Hello fellow mathies,
I thought I would share some of the great things I come across on Twitter and on the blogs I read. It might be a cool activity or link to an article or blog post, but should only take a minute (or so) to read - hence the Math Minute title. I'll do my best to send a Math Minute out once a week, however please feel free to let me know if you would prefer not to receive them."
This was followed by a short description and the first link that was all about Desmos card sorts.
Here is the link to the Google doc I am using to keep track of what I have shared.
This is a sample (since it had no link):
I have been using the box (area model) method for multiplying and dividing polynomials for a while now. I like it because there are no tricks involved and students can see (and hopefully understand!) why they are doing what they are doing.
Below is a sample of factoring a non-monic trinomials. There would normally only be one box, but I tried to make my steps understandable for you. I have to say that I love algebra and decomposition and I have been friends for a long time, but I love the box for these. Try it out!
Although I have had little feedback from these Math Minutes <insert sad face>, I thought I would share what I've done in case someone else is looking for a way of sharing ideas.
