MSTE Friday Lunches are paused indefinitely, but you can still find historical archives, including videos, on this site.

This talk investigates students' work on a problem where they developed their understandings of rates of change through group work on a problem.  Anna will show examples of classroom conversations that display students' transitions towards a deeper understanding of rates of change.

This week we will have Pete Glaze with some math puzzles. Join us for some fun exercises. Don't forget your thinking caps!
