9/10/2011 4:17:12Scott FarrarOakland, CA5GeometryI have been reading Dan's blog since I started teaching in 2007. It is eternally refreshing to interact with teachers who treat math as the explorative and investigative subject it is.

9/10/2011 4:19:10Javier GarciaClovis, CA10AlgebraI thought this would be a tremendous opportunity for personal growth and development. As go I, so do my students, so it is important that I continue to find ways to improve my teaching. Also, been a fan of your work for some time now.

9/10/2011 6:17:30Jack DieckmannSan Jose5 yearsAlgebra and GeometryI am interested in how to let students form their own math-related questions to a context or situation. I have been interested in Dan's use of video and visual hooks for some time now.

9/12/2011 2:25:54MarisaWoodside, CA4geometryI teach high flyers at an independent school. This year I have 9 fifth graders who I will teach 7th grade math to (pre-algebra). They desperately need context and a challenge- so I try to make what we learn as applicable as I can. My goal is to do math stories on Mondays- eventually having my students create their own.

11/16/2012 21:43:26paula rageredgeater, florida38algebraI teach the lowest level of algebra. I try desperately, daily, to have lessons appeal to them. I try to place the responsibility of learning on their shoulders. I try to relate all math to real life.
It is a rough job but after 25 years in private school, I believe I am on a mission, for the past 13 years, to care and respect those students who need it, but rarely receive it the most.
I have read much of your work. You are a most wonderful man to reach out and help all of us do what we do best.
I thank you and hope some day to personally meet you to say thanks in person!
