Between 2 Numbers

I created a new site, it’s called Between 2 Numbers.

From the About/Contact page:

The inspiration for this site came from John Allen Paulos’ book Innumeracy. I read the book back in 2008, but reading it again this past summer reignited the inspiration and turned it into fruition. In my lesson plan spreadsheet, I started a column of “tidbits” to share with my students; it’s filled with mathematical fun facts, latest news, and stuff you see on here. I teach middle school mathematics, and ratios and proportional reasoning make up large portions of the curriculum, so I’m always comparing stuff, like tossing my flipflop onto this big Danish clog while visiting Solvang, CA, and wondering how big or tall the person wearing such clogs would have to be.

My goal is to have at least 40 entries to match the number of school weeks.

I would love to hear how you would use the site with your students and any other feedback.

And I hope your school year is off to a great start. I get to teach 7th and 8th-grade math this year. We’re on a block schedule for the second year now, and I’m getting used to it. Be well and teach well, my friends!

Awesome … naturally! It’s hard to admit but my only concern is I have NO idea what there answer to some of the questions is 😂 It will be fun to look them up together with my classes.

Have you written about this “Lesson Plan Spreadsheet”? I’d certainly be interested in any info you would like to share about how you use a spreadsheet in your lesson planning!

Hi Katie and Steve. The lesson spreadsheet that I refer to is simply my lesson plan mapped out on a Google Sheets. This format is just easiest for me to make sure I stay on track and hit the variety of things that I’d like to do with my students. Thank you for dropping in.
