I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).
Elissa Miller is the chevron-obsessed teacher and blogger found at misscalculate.blogspot.com She is currently in her 10th year of teaching, blogging, and tweeting. As the only teacher at a small southern Illinois school, she teaches Algebra 1 through Trig. Her current obsessions are Google Classroom and brag bracelets; her old obsessions are interactive notebooks and card sorts. One of her teaching strengths is breaking down concepts into smaller pieces, making it easier to address misconceptions. This session is the culmination of those small pieces when teaching congruent triangle proofs. See all the ideas she's ever tried as she scaffolds students up to writing full proofs.
I have the last 8 years teaching project based learning in Michigan. I have taught every grade from 8th-12th. I am currently teaching Algebra One & Two to 10th graders and a 12th grade Financial Algebra course
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
