This past Saturday I attended the first P16 conference in Sugar land, right up the road. I was extremely excited about going to a conference so close to home that focused on math. Free breakfast and lunch was a bonus on top of all the great professional development that I would receive once the day had ended.
While enjoying a lite breakfast, Greg Tang, National author of Grapes of Math and Math for all Season, and math teacher, set the stage for a great day of learning. Tang had us laughing, engaging and thinking about math with new perspective. I could not wait to look up his free website and game site and get the wheels in my head thinking about how I could incorporate his site into my math class. So here they are: GregTang.com and his game site GregTangMath.com
I attended sessions that focused on math discussions, and how to get our students talking about math and using vocabulary, Photo story and WolframAlfa.com , Flipped Math class, which I have homework to complete and can't wait to do it, and integrating iPads in math other than the typical.... lets play an app activity. All in all, it was a great day and I can't wait to attend next year.
