Math 180 Seminar at BEMS

On August 21st & 22nd, I am attending a training seminar on Scholastic's Math 180 system that is being implemented at the middle school this year. I did some research on the system prior to the workshop, but I am super excited about what this will offer to not only our students but also for the teachers. It is geared towards helping struggling math students become ready for algebra and beyond in a fun and engaging way.

We are covering a LOT over these two days, but I've been trying to take tons of notes to share with those of you who weren't able to be here. Hopefully it all makes sense!

Part of the feedback from the other teachers is the integration of an interactive whiteboard in the system. For those of you who don't have a whiteboard, I think a pen tablet makes a great addition to your classroom. It basically gives you a mouse in pen form to make writing out the equations easier. There are several options on the market, but Wacom is a pretty well known brand. Click here to check out an affordable, wired tablet.
