Learn anything, with your peers.

At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.

This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.

    posted message: I summarized participation data I have, up to now, here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqenMfoYXJb3dF9vcG0waTdiVGN0M2VVdjZuY1NoOHc If I missed something, please let me know privately. I will be doing several summaries next week, which won't be tasks (just my summaries of course activities). Tomorrow, I will post a task inviting you to share math celebration ideas, which will be a bonus task. It has been an interesting journey for me, for sure! So many things I learned... For example, the original syllabus had about 5% overlap with people's interests and had to be reworked. Computer-based vs. computer-delivered math makes no sense to people as categories. Being an evil overlord is fun, theoretically at least. Rock on!

    posted message: I am not sure if this is the right place to post our Prezi's but here is mine http://prezi.com/rknpmccpmr_v/copy-of-how-can-we-measure-teaching-and-learning-in-mathematics/ I chose this one because it related to my one blog this week about testing in classrooms, specifically in math. Although not everything in this video is something I agree with, I think it brings up good points and makes me rethink the way we assess students and gage knowledge.
