Thanks for Desmos Teaching Fellowship

I clearly haven't been updating this blog much, but following the previous post, I've recently been awarded a Desmos Teaching Fellowship. I'll receive an expenses paid trip to headquarters in San Francisco in November, and an opportunity to help them develop their teaching applications.

Since our students are 1 to1 with Chromebooks, I've been using both the pre-made, and the custom Desmos activities in all of my classes. Last January, I presented a workshop to a group of colleagues on using the activities. Here's the presentation and the PPT. Most of my math colleagues now use in some way or another.

Hopefully more updates to come!
