Happy TMC, everybody! I know all the TMC-ers are busy TMC-ing right now, but it's Friday! Here we go...
Here at camp there's a "Games and Strategies" class running this week, and kids keep running up to staff proposing games like "We start at zero, take turns adding 1, 2, or 3, first one to 19 loses." These are kind of addicting, is what I'm saying, and motivate and "Support Generalizing, Conjecturing, Strategy, and Proof-Like Reasoning," as the title suggests. And here are a zillion of them in one document!
Just putting this out as a public service announcement that schools that pull shit like this exist, so you can walk away quickly if you get a whiff of it in an interview. h/t Lani for the share.
Here's some recreational math for you, in the spirit of math camp.
Back in the days of student-ing, my life was all about my paper organizer. I had very specific requirements and shopped and shopped until I found it. These days I'm a more scattered leaving-digital-detritus-in-my-wake kind of organizer, but this makes me think maybe it's not too late.
