Twitter Link Round-Up

Here's a recap of the links that I've posted on Twitter over the past week or so: 1.  A friend told me that she used this Divisibility Rocks game from over at The Utah Education Network with her Developmental Math students and that it worked really well.  It turns out that they have plenty of other great lesson plans as well. 2.  Z-Type is a very intense typing game.  It turns out that as a Math Instructor, I do have to teach typing, computer, and writing skills as well.  For example:  One student told me just today that he couldn't write a paper for my class about an African American Mathematician because he hadn't had an English class yet. 3.  NightMare is an example of a 25-word story.  I'm considering having my students write their own 25 word stories about a concept in mathematics.  This would be good introductory video to show to students, though, because it is absolutely hilarious!...
