Post GCTM

I would first like to thank the GCTM committee for putting on another great conference this year. I would like to have been able to make it to more sessions than I did, but I picked up quite a few things from the ones I did attend. If you would like to respond this post, please include any sessions that you found particularly helpful and any sites or links you would like to share.

Next, thank you to those who attended our sessions this year. Jason and I realize we probably overloaded each session with material and will be looking at ways to remedy that going forward. Its a hard balancing act, since we  would like to attend sessions too. With your input from the survey, we will hopefully have a better idea about the content, material, and number of sessions to include next year.

I would also like to apologize for the technical difficulties we experienced for our sessions. As someone who was  presenting on using technology, I'm disappointed in my lack of preparation for contingencies in cases like where the faulty tech belongs to me. If you would like to receive any of the assessments that I have put into Examview format, simply send me an email requesting it. I don't want to place the file on the Wikispace due to the fact that the answers would be included. I will be more than happy to forward it directly to you upon your request. Thanks again for attending and have a great year!

There is a link to the wikispace on the tab to the right, but I'll include it here as well.

GCTM

In a few short days, my co-presenter, Jason Williams, and I will be providing great teachers from all over the state of GA with what we hope will be very useful and welcomed information. 


If you plan on attending this years conference (once again located at beautiful Rock Eagle), please look for our sessions. 


One is entitled "Resources for the H.S. Math Classroom" and will be on Thursday from 3:15 to 4:15. 


The other will be on Friday from 11:45 to 12:45 and is titled "Completing the Puzzle: A list of great technologies/websites and their uses in a K-12 classroom." We hope to see you there!

Picture of a Quadrilateral


This picture was taken by a student of mine for the assignment of finding 5 different polygons used outside of the school. Seeing how we do NOT have a pasture at our school, this picture of a sign does quite well for this assignment. It is a good representation of a quadrilateral. If someone is inclined to say otherwise due to the corners being rounded, then I would ask them to remember that getting a student to complete an assignment outside of the classroom is a victory in itself and don't split hairs. :)

Back Again!

New post for the first time in two months. I had to turn over admin priveleges for awhile because we were getting graded on our blogs. I'll admit that I didn't exactly get into the posts quite like I wanted to. It felt like it was more of a task than something I enjoyed. I actually would like to get this blog going as a way for me to vent some of my frustrations as well as discover some helpful ideas about new ways of doing things in the classroom. I think too often I try and rush out on my own and then get frustrated when things didn't work out like I had planned. I want to discover the right way to teach my students and still enjoy the job. Later!

If you look to the right there are links to several websites that I feel are great internet tools and resources. My wiki link is also located to the right and contains several links to very special tools gathered from some of the premo minds that have attended UWG.
