Best Calculator App!


I found an awesome calculator app. If you use a TI-84 or TI-83, you will be pleased with this graphing app. It cost $5.99. I currently am using an iPhone 6s and it is a perfect solution for those days when I don't have my calculator with me.

Find it in iTunes

An Oldie but A Goodie

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics: Teachers' Understanding of Fundamental Mathematics in China and the United States

I read this book years ago and highly recommend it, still, for any math teacher, especially elementary teachers. It should be the basis of a required course for elementary school teachers and will explain some of the better aspects of the Common Core.
