I have been on Twitter for 7 years now and one of the things but it has never really been a place where I have had deep discussions about math. Something about the stream of posts or 140 character limit maybe. But now, thanks to @dlants, there is a place to have longer deep discussions. Do it on the Math Teachers Discourse site. Check it out and join the conversation. Thanks to @ddmeyer for this one.

I think this has been available for a while but on Wolfram Alpha, there is a whole section on practicing math problems. The free version just lets you solve many math problems (from addition to calculus) but if you pay, you can generate worksheets and get full solutions. Thanks to @MaryBourassa and @viemath for pointing this out.

He has already done a comedy routine about spreadsheets. So why not a comedy routine about equations (complex ones at that).

I just saw the movie Dr. Strange and there are some trippy scenes. So if you want to show your kids some demonstrations of translations, rotations, dilatations, reflections and stretches.

I have never been a fan of these over sized Christmas lights but @MrOrr_Geek has found that you can inspire some talk of proportions with them.Happy Monday! What fraction of the decagon is shaded? #mathchat #geometry #measurement pic.twitter.com/As6BAFkogb— Dan Allen (@AllenMath) November 28, 2016
