Clap for Math Chat!

My students keep me fresh, and their humor is infectious. My continual hope is that they will use their humor and creative energy to help improve math education.

T.J. French and Kyle Walsh are two such WWU students, about to become secondary math teachers. They pulled a stunt on me during a break in a class. So, I challenged them to create a video using the stunt. What they produced far exceeded what I expected.

And now the video called Math Chat!

I thank them for their fine effort...and note that the tie used in the video was mine. I had just given it to Kyle as a gift.

Again, as part of the resources and websites for this next year, I am trying to suggest an on-line video(s) each month. Thus, if you have a favorite video (e.g. YouTube, TeacherTube, whatever....), please send the link to me (with your comments?) and I will try to include it and share it with others.
