Hello, reader! If you intend to post a link to this blog on Twitter, be aware that for utterly mysterious reasons, Twitter thinks this blog is spam, and will prevent you from linking to it. Here's a workaround: change the .com in the address to .ca. I call it the "Maple Leaf Loophole." And thanks for sharing!

Blogs You Probably Aren't Reading But Should Be

These are some of my favorites and none of them have more than 100 GR subscribers. Get with it, secmathedublogosphere! School doesn't start until Monday, right? Clear the dead weight out of your readers and add some new voices. (fair warning, this is slanted heavily toward high school math.) If you're thinking "I/my buddy should be on this list!" please add it in a comment.

Blogarithm - Insightful and honest.

Concrete Classroom - Don your safety goggles and dig in.

Math Recreation is not for drowsy bedtime reading but holy crap I love this blog. Get yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy.

Mathspig - Has an endearing habit of posting a hungry pig grunting post in between real (knock your geeky socks off) posts.

Mrs. H writes a blog with a beating heart. If you're an all-business blog reader, you might not get her.

Megan Golding - I forgive her for stealing my hairdo because she has the best profile pic.

Meta Musings - Is asking important questions.

Mr. K doesn't post that much, but when he drops something it's always worth reading.

Stop Trying to Inspire Me - Because sometimes your inner curmudgeon needs nurturing.

Transformed Educator - Living in the intersection where I spend most of my time - tech and how we use it to improve instruction, not just make it noisier.

  1. Thanks for asking others to read my "Transformed Educator" blog. It is good to know that someone in the blogosphere enjoys what I am posting.

    Hopefully, your post will encourage more of our math teacher colleagues to fill their RSS reader with useful math blogs.

  3. Thanks Kate! I have added these to my RSS Reader - I now have 35 Maths blogs that I read. What a wonderful way to share and collaborate with teachers from all around the world.

  4. Thanks for the recommendations! I needed some fresh reading for the new year (or mid-year, as teachers live!).

  5. Kate,

    Thanks for mentioning my blog! Hope your holidays are going great. Mine have been too busy with family and friends to post, but I'm sure come Monday, I'll have plenty of new material again.

  6. Thanks for sharing! My GR is going to be even more chaotic, but that's definitely not a bad thing!

  9. This time it's the broadband modem. I went to Staples today to see if I could buy one there. No luck. I should have just bought one through AT&T when I was on the phone with them, I guess.

    I do like my local coffee shop, and I'm getting lots of work done while I can't get online. ;^)
