I thought it would be fun to post several math-related Ignite videos from events my company has sponsored in the past year as a way to inspire some thought and spark some creativity around math and how we teach it. I must admit to being a little brain dead and suffering a lack of thoughts for posting. I have been writing 5-6 hours every day for my literature review and, while I realize I should be posting to my blog, I find I don't have the energy, so I am going to take the easy way out and let others do the talking for me!
For those of you unfamiliar with Ignite, these are 5-minute presentations where the speakers have 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. I have chosen just a few of my favorites here, but if you are interested in looking at more, you can find them at Key Curriculum Press Ignite.
Here are several for your enjoyment (in no particular order). Some inspiring, some funny, but all thought provoking and things we should consider as we begin 2012.
