I'm really interested in inquiry-based learning and creating new math lessons.

Math 7
I am really keen to start introducing more Web 2.0 tools in my Math classroom and hope that this course might be the push that I need. Particularly interested in using blogs, screencasts etc to get my students writing and communicating about math.
I'll come back to this one

Math Review (a course for entering freshmen who are not ready for Intermediate Algebra)
I would like to make my worksheet-heavy course more interactive by using online tools. I've incorporated cooperative learning strategies into my class periods, and I've used our university online system to give quizzes and receive evaluations, but I haven't actually created a course or unit completely online. I started to do so with Moodle and PortaPortal, but then flaked out.

I've been working hard to incorporate Assessment For Learning principles in my math courses but the one that I'm really struggling with is peer assessment. My courses are in Moodle and students are at a distance but working synchronously.

Curiosity! I suppose I should be more specific but there's just so much going on.
Well, now, that's an interesting question... what were your thoughts?

I work in an alternative school that is 1:1. I would like to find more ways to incorporate web 2.0 tools. I use moodle now.

Math 8 (mostly), Secondary Math
One of the topics that I'm really interested in is ways of combining/blending the use of physical and virtual manipulatives in teaching math. I've also been working more on media to create problems in a visual format. Want to work more on getting students to express their learning using web 2.0 tools in math: blogs, glogs, screenrecording, etc.
A recent one from Ben Blum-Smith from his Research in Practice blog:
"They need problems where they actually don’t know the truth and have to figure it out for themselves."
- in talking about proofs, but applicable more broadly

Mathematics 9-12
For the past two years I have been teaching Algebra 1 Inclusion. With few exceptions students are well below grade level in their mathematical ability.

My goal is to learn how to use Moodle to develop a comprehensive, stand alone, PA Standards Aligned, Algebra 1 course which students can complete at their own pace.

My intent is for each concept to be developed using UbD principles in conjunction with Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Leaning principles and includes animations, gizzmos, and virtual manipulatives so as to address various learning modalities.

I also want to include requisite scaffolding so that students who are well below grade level can build their knowledge so as to be successful in learning the ALGEBRAIC concepts.

Thus, students who successfully complete this course will have LEARNED real algebra.

I like this virtual week long event format and hope to contribute and learn from this PLN.

I would like to see how various Web 2.0 tools are used in mathematics and other classrooms; particularly virtual
manipulatives, remote tutoring tools, mathcasts, screencasts, pencasts.
