Looking For Math Resources? Kristin Gray Has A Pinterest Board For You

January 29, 2016 / by Kristin Gray

At any given time, my computer has at least ten open tabs in my Google Chrome web browser. Not because I'm using all those pages at once necessarily, but because if I close some of them it takes me too much time to find them again.

Pinterest-logoSo when Teaching Channel asked me if I'd be interested in guest curating a Pinterest board, I took it as an opportunity to put all my favorite online resources in one place. I brainstormed my most trusted math routines, places where I connect and learn with others, resources I use in professional development, and classroom resources I simply cannot live without.

The result is my Mathematics Routines and Resources Pinterest board. Unlike some of the education pins on Pinterest, these are all free and shared openly by many wonderful mathematics educators.

While choosing the links to pin wasn't difficult, finding a way to organize them in Pinterest did pose quite a challenge. I find the visual nature of Pinterest distracting, and can easily go from searching for a dinner recipe to repurposing corks, to making a table, to realizing I need a new pair of boots from a fashion blog -- all within two seconds. And in the end, I forget what I went on Pinterest for in the first place! To avoid all of that distraction, I stripped this Pinterest Board down to the basics. There are no flashy pictures or funny memes, just the name of the resource and the link.

This board is a working document, so if you have a math resource or routine you think belongs here, please let me know in the comments below and I'll check it out and possibly pin it to the board. Adding one more pin and closing one more tab in my browser is always a welcome addition to my world. Enjoy!
