Hapara just released a feature which makes it possible for teachers to sync their Google Classrooms with Hapara Dashboard. Now with just the click of a button, you can import your Google Classroom classes into Hapara Dashboard. This is exciting news for teachers who have already discovered ways to combine the best features from both applications. It is also exciting for teachers who have been reluctant to use Hapara because they were already using Google Classroom.

Fractals

Mandelbrot was brought into the fold by IBM when they were first trying to find out why computers were behaving strangely. He found out that there was a very simple formula that would explain the phenomena and could subsequently help to figure out many other things. 
None of this would have been possible without modern computing.
Multiplication on the scale that they needed it was not possible prior to computers. Imagine what the future will hold for us....


Flexible Thinking

From the desk of our resident Math Coach
Flexible thinking and skill applications are keys to student retention and fluency.  Trying to write meaningful problems while wrangling a lost backpack or planning a trip to the river, is nearly impossible--though many of you do it!!  Here are some sites that have problems that are proven and fairly easy to select.  
Robert Kaplinsky and Dan Meyer are well known math problem developers, but this page of selected sites adds more to the list:

The following site will be included on the WCSU resource page, as it is specifically from Robert Kaplinsky and has a wonderful collection of problem solving topics that are fleshed out for you all to use.  There are discussion guides, engaging launches, and multiple standards addressed--which are listed for your own planning.
