Movie Clips in the Mathematics Classroom Many of the students in today’s secondary (and college) classrooms grew up watching attention-grabbing, action-packed educational programs. These students now spend more hours in front of a video screen than they do reading books. No wonder students may find traditional mathematics education to be dull and boring. So, what can mathematics educators do to compete in this exciting and captivating world of technology? The answer seems to be simple: embrace technology in the classroom.

Ride the Line...A Game for Parallel & Perpendicular
Last week we were investigating linear equations....in particular what parallel and perpendicular lines look like as equations, not just graphs. When you do all the graphing by hand or even on a handheld graphing calculator, this is pretty slow. Also the Common Core calls upon us to provide more discussion oriented kinds of learning designs....we're incorporate a bunch of the mathematical practices here---reason abstractly, construct viable arguments and accept feedback, model and use tools to investigate math ideas. I'd say that this is a CCSS home run. I tried a different learning technique, so in honor of #msSunFun this is my game contribution.

Introduction to Functions
There are many algebra books that have many ways of defining a function. Chances are if you look at four different books you would find at least two different explanations of a function. Does this mean some explanations are right and others are wrong or that there are numerous definitions for a function? Not really. The definition of a function never changes, but the way teachers and textbooks explain that definition take on many forms. We’re going to look at functions in the following way.
