Hello world!

So I took up Dan Meyer’s challenge and created this blog. He started his blog six years ago as a “lesson debrief.” Sounds like a good place to start.

Last year over winter break I started reading books on teaching mathematics and using ideas from video games. Lee Sheldon’s book, The Multiplayer Classroom, inspired me to try something low-tech first. I took one of my algebra classes and made it a mathematician/scientist/pirate role-playing game. We had a lot of fun and I learned some things.

In a few days school will start again and I will try another class with the pirate rpg and two classes with a spy rpg. Am I crazy?
