finding an education blog that’s relevant to what I would like to do in my career was a harrowing task; more-so than I anticipated
I decided to start my search with google; hoping that I would find a starting point. However a few pages into my search of “math education blogs” made me quickly realize that I needed to revamp my keywords. I tried adding the name of some popular blog sites (like wordpress), as well as changing “education” to teacher. At that point I realized after clicking links that looked interesting, and clicking links on some blogs that I checked out, I had way too many tabs open. After going through and closing a lot of tabs, I found a great list of “top math blogs.”
There I clicked through, and all of them seemed like great blogs with interesting ideas and discussions. I particularly liked one post about making a human box and whisker plot.
I never considered doing something like this. I know that students learn better w(hen they are actively involved in the lessons. It also talked about ways to improve the lesson. In addition I was pleased to see another comment describing how she did the same project, in a slightly different way. From that post I clicked on the blogs that commented. And sure enough I found many more blogs that were interesting in different and creative math lessons. (Which led to more tabs, but this time they were all filled with blogs I connected with.)
