## Mind Maps for Calculus, Algebra, and Statistics

This semester I decided that I wanted to organize all of the resources that I've found on the Internet onto Mind Maps for my Calculus, Algebra, and Statistics classes.  There was just too much that I wanted to tell my students about every semester that it started to become too overwhelming to repost the links on my LMS every semester (my courses don't ever seem to copy very well from semester to semester).  The results are below.  Feel free to share with everyone. For the calculus map, bit.ly/calcmap For the algebra map, bit.ly/algebramap For the statistics map, bit.ly/statmap     ...

## MindMap for Basic Mathematics Project

I learned a lot from the class that I took on Online Learning and Teaching this semester.  We used the book Understanding by Design by Wiggins and McTighe.  This course has revolutionized the entire way that I think about teaching and learning.  As of late, when planning lessons, I keep finding myself needing to list the big idea, the misconceptions, and the essential questions.  I've also found this to be a good way to organize my own learning.  This book is truly a great read. As part of this course, we had to design a demo course using the ideas in the book.  To present my course, I decided to use a mindmap, rather than a PowerPoint presentation.  I thought I would post it here as just a little sample of everything that I have been working so hard to do this semester. http://www.mindomo.com/view?m=ed9c47bcafeb408495c2e52561fae659 ...

## A Paper Idea for Learning to Plot Points

First of all, congratulations to Maria Andersen for winning the Mindomo MindMap of the Week.  Now, let's document my journey over the next 30 minutes or so after I started hunting around the Play and Learn Mind Map.  And this is truly interesting, as it might show you exactly how I think sometimes. I started with the Play and Learn Mind Map, which led me to the Playing to Learn Math Mind Map (Also by Maria Andersen). I noticed that the Playing to Learn Math Mind Map (a work in progress) did not have any links to games about logarithms (although there is a spot for it). I started searching Google for Logarithm Games and I came across this post called This Game Really is Worth 1000 Worksheets, which is simply a printable war-style card game about logarithms. This site then led me to Let's Play Math, where I found a wonderful post about a Graph-It Game.  However, the Graph-It Game only...
