Dan Meyer

I've been a fan of Dan Meyer's blog and website since I heard of it a few months ago, and have followed every blog post since.

He's got this new website where people post pictures as starting points for questions for students to discover. The picture with the most comments or most interesting ways for students to use math to solve potentially could be performance assessments in the classroom. Over spring break I'm going to assign students to look at the blog and post their thoughts/try to solve one as extra credit. That site is here:

and his general blog which is very interesting as a math teacher is here:
