My current teaching assignment: Summit Middle School, Boulder Colorado.
These pages include digital copies of things I hand out in classprovided I have digital copies of the handouts (that part is always tricky)as well as homework for the courses.
Algebra 1My school has several "pathways" for students in math. The normal pathway has all students going through Algebra by the end of their 8th grade year. This is the second year of Alg 1; we call it Algebra 1B. Basically, it's all the fun stuff we normally get to second semester except I have almost an entire year to teach it.

GeometryThis is our pre I.B. Geometry class with a focus on proofs. We're using a book published in 1991 (Moise and Downs). Aligning this class with the CCSS has taken quite a bit of work.

ProgrammingReady to learn Python with us? Ready. Set. Go!
I've never taught programming before and I'm not technically "qualified" to teach the course. The only thing I have going for me is my curiosity and the fact that I'm not a new teacher. As it turns out, that's plenty! 
Math Tasks, Problems and Projects
Slowly, slowly, slowly, putting the content I use for my courses online. After several false starts, I'm focusing less on trying to incorporate technology into my lessons and more on simply creating engaging inquiry based lessons... or at least stealing them from other people. Let me know if you find anything useful or if you think of anything I might be interested in. I posted a video below showing what my classroom looks like. Happy hunting.
Math and Jobs. It's not my favorite thing to talk about but it is real.
Some pretty sweet math reading
I’m not much of a web surfer… there are plenty of other ways I’d rather waste my time (playing with my kids, chess, guitar, painting). However, I have found some education math blogs which are like time black holes but more fun. If you're an educator, or a student who wants to know how better teachers than me teach math, this is worth checking out.
Dan Meyer dy/dan
I'm particularly interested in how Dan incorporates technology into his teaching. For example, take a look at his Graphing Stories work. I totally plan on stealing some of his stuff to use in my classroom.
Fawn Nguyen  Finding Ways to Nguyen Students Over
She has some great ideas about using activities in math. Plus she's just plain old fun to read.
Shawn Cornally  ThinkThankThunk
Great thoughts on education and how let to student questions guide the direction of a lesson. I don't always agree but it does get me thinking.
Though I don't visit this next site very often, it is worth mentioning. This is probably the best lesson on Mullets you will ever see:

Better Math Problems
For the last decade I've been searching for more engaging problems for my students. This first led me to make them as realworld as possible. Then it shifted towards being as rich as possible (in math content). Now, I'm in the process of shifting again... to something a little more like this.
It's a hard lesson to learn: be less helpful.


Science, Technology, Engineering and MAth (STEM)
This infographic does a decent job summarizing why we push so hard for you to understand math and the sciences in school.
