Math, mathematics, Pythagoras, pythatoreantheorem
Love those videos by Vi Hart. We also love this guy Pythagoras. But do we really know him? There are two great reads that claims that this guy plagiarized the an African Theorem and flipped it as the Pythagoras Theorem.
1. “Stolen Legacy” by George GM James
Pythagoras of Samos
2. “Civilization or Barbarism” by Cheik Anta Diop.
If you really want to get weirded-out, do some research on his cult following.

Whether or not it you are a Baltimore Ravens fan or not, you have to love Ray Lewis. With starting the second semester, I desire my students to approach math problems as if they were Ray Lewis on the football field. Now that would be awesome! This brief video I believe with spark the intensity within my students to accomplish this goal!

Education, Lesson Plans, Math, Teaching
Education, fun, Math, relevant
Words that I am working on to increase in my classroom. The first quarter of school is almost over. In order for my student to stay engaged in learning, I must master these two things in my discipline of mathematics.
I guess I could make the excuse that I do not have enough time to plan such lessons, but in order to get my students where they need to be, I must make sacrifices to make connections to these two words.
So I guess I will attempt to dedicate my next few post to the aforementioned topics.

What’s up? This is what’s up…. this link will take you to a TI-73/83/84 FREE emulator called WabbitStudio Z80 Software tools!
It is not as good as TI SmartView, but if you are on a budget, this will do. Here are the directions to create your ROM image for your emulator after downloading the program. Try it out and may you have a great school year!

I actually had a productive teacher workday. I created some SB videos, and here is one of them. Enjoy!

calculator, Math, ti84, tinspire
Can you actually believe that they are updating the TI-Nspire already? I don’t think that its worth going to Baltimore for NCTM to see it.
Well, maybe so… Looks like they just seperated the numeric and alpha keypad. Unfortunately the keypad is not in the QWERTY format. I wonder if the upgrade is only the keypad upgrade, not the whole kit and kaboodle. Also, I wonder when they will update the TI-84 OS on the TI-Nspire that will allow the cool features of version 2.53MP?!
TI… we need some answers!
