At the conference I was at in London, we were discussing, what would a mathematics curriculum look like if the computational step of doing mathematics was something students did using a computer?

**Update:** The video from this session has been posted by the Computer Based Math organization. See below.

**Blanca Parra shared this Prezi** with me, and I love it. It's going into my collection of resources I can share with people about how we can change mathematics education. I wonder if we could get RSA animate or someone with similar skills to create a video related to this.

Just posted this comment on t**his article lamenting the loss of the standard algorithms** in Mathematics classrooms.

*Should we teach the standard algorithms for arithmetic? Absolutely, but they shouldn't be the only algorithms kids learn.*

This playlist has some very interesting videos from the **Open University **on their **YouTube channel **on the topic of mathematical modelling, and how it is used in different contexts.

I recommend this talk by **Eric Mazur **on why he switched his teaching from lecture based teaching to **peer instruction based** approach. It's more than an hour long, but it really is worth it.

As an experiment, I started out the beginning of this year and tried flipping my classroom, but with a slight twist: I have extra instructional time, so students were to watch the instructional videos (from the **Khan Academy** and **IBVodcasting.com**) during classroom time.
