Halloween Special: Welcome to Night Tangents

Posted in Short Form on October 30, 2013 by Ashli

October is my favorite month. Welcome to Night Vale is an awesome podcast. I decided to do a parody podcast in the theme of the season.

This podcast is purely fictional and any names, websites, or other nouns used in the podcast are meant solely for amusement. It’s also about 13 minutes long, so don’t feel like you are committing to something huge here :]

As always, you can find today’s episode on iTunes, Stitcher, or by clicking this link.

Goodnight, fair listeners. Goodnight.

Episode 115: @wahedahbug, part 2

Here’s part 2 of Tangent’s interview with @wahedahbug, a teacher from the small town of Hana, HI. In this part, she answers some questions from the twitter community and we muse on fractions and school mascots. If you want to listen to someone passionate about education with a deep desire to get better, you’ve come to the right spot! I also think this may win the “most shout outs to the twitter community” award :D

You can find today’s guest on twitter or on her blog or through a window into her class.

Please feel free to drop a line with comments/queries or if you would to have something you are doing in the Math Ed world signal boosted. Use the hashtag #8Tangents to talk about the show on twitter.

Episode 114: @wahedahbug, part 1

Sometimes life gives you lemons and other times life sends you to an island where you get to eat fresh mangos. Just don’t offer any to @wahedahbug–she thinks they are gross. Last Spring I had the good fortune of visiting @wahedahbug at her home in Hana, HI. She is every bit as epic in person as you would expect and the kiddos of Hana are lucky to have her.  And since she cannot be contained, part two will be up in two weeks.

Check out @wahedahbug on twitter or on her blog or through a window into her class.

Hope everyone is making a great start to their year. Please feel free to drop a line with comments/queries or if you would to have something you are doing in the Math Ed world signal boosted.

Happy July from Park City, Utah! Been getting some recording done during the busy days here at PCMI and looking forward to TCM13 next week, woo!

This week we hear part 2 of my chat with Max Ray of The Math Forum!

Make sure to answer Max’s question in the comments after you listen:

“What are the external measures of success? what are the things we can measure without tests that would tell us our kids are leaving HS numerate enough?”
