Becky Holden (@bholden86) and I attended Twitter Math Camp (#TMC17) at Holy Innocents Episcopal School in Atlanta, GA from Thursday, July 27 to Sunday, July 30.
This conference is by teachers, for teachers. The structure of TMC contains the following lengths of presentations:
- Morning sessions (One session that meets Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings for 2 hours each morning)
- Afternoon sessions (Individual 1/2 hour sessions on Thursday)
- Afternoon sessions (Individual 1 hour sessions Thursday, Friday and Saturday)
To honor Carl Oliver‘s (@carloliwitter) #PushSend request/challenge, here are my sketch notes from the sessions I attended.
The Politics(?) of Mathematics Teaching
Grace Chen (@graceachen)
What does it mean to say that mathematics teaching is political, and what does that mean for our moral and ethical responsibility as mathematics teachers?
Micro-decisions in Questioning
David Petersen (@calcdave)
What is not captured in my notes is play: game night, trivia, crocheting, and tons of fun.
How might we grow, learn, and play in community when together and when apart?
I attended the TMC Desmos pre-conference at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School in Atlanta on July 26.
