I'm skimming through my nightly Common Core Math Resources & blogs I follow, and I have noticed the twitter handle #MTBoS re-occurring lately. I do a little digging and decide to join the MathTwitterBlogosphere world.
I just got done reading Andrew Shauver's blog post about why he is not worried about the future of math in the U.S. In a nutshell, he believes there is a movement that has started led by math geeks interested in changing the way we teach math. Less traditional routine - more innovative, creative, technologically rich lessons.
I have to say that I agree with Mr. Shauver on this one. We have so many free, online resources that are engaging to the students. And each day more are created. Within 5 years, I think there will be enough materials online that teachers will hardly need a textbook to teach from. Exciting times!
