We want to thank you for presenting to our teachers. They were very engaged and excited about your presentation and enjoyed the activities. We need everyone to hear your message!
Dr. Shah’s full day workshop was awesome! Two days later, we are still talking Math!!! It was a wonderful PD. Thank you for your time, insight AND activities.
First, I have to tell you how much my gifted teachers LOVED your presentation at the OAGC Teacher Academy! We met today and they kept going on and on about how wonderful you were, how great the presentation was, and how many ideas/concepts they were able to take away from your session!
The keys to mastery of K-12 math (and beyond?): Pictures and Patterns.
If your math experience is grounded in pictures and patterns (vs. memorization), you will have a long and productive mathematical journey.
How will you count the triangles in this #MathTreat? Would love to know how you break this down. https://youtu.be/DZyIpcMKD3U #mtbos #iteachmath
If you could design the "perfect" online math class experience for grades 3-8 what would it look like? Live / recorded? how many students? what tech would you use? just one teacher? what are kids doing? etc. I'd love to hear from the community on this one! #mtbos #iteachmath
This week's Math Treat. I have no idea what the solution is, do you??? If so, don't give it away! :-)
Also, could this be used in a classroom? If so, which grades and related to which curriculum topics?

This week's #MathTreat (which I haven't tried yet!) is Square Takeaway https://youtu.be/Qiw7n-E-d1s
Teachers, try it with students and let me know how you all tackle this. Which questions are most interesting? How do you resolve them? #iteachmath
I have always had an affinity for math. Powered by my love of math, I earned a Ph.D. in Physics in 1999 which led to a decade in R&D at Intel. In 2008, I quit my job and founded Math Plus Academy, an after-school STEM enrichment program for kids from ages 5 – 14. I'm also proud to be a founding member of The Global Math Project. In addition, I also help lead a Math Teacher Circle and host the Julia Robinson Math Festival in Columbus, Ohio.
Over the last several years, I have worked with numerous school districts throughout the country and presented at numerous conferences including NCTM Annual, NCSM Annual, and the National Math Festival.
