On My Way...

Right after school tomorrow I will be heading to the NCTM (National Council for Teachers of Mathematics) Regional Conference.  This will be my fourth time attending the conference and my second time as a presenter.  Have any of you ever heard of the Golden Rectangle or Golden Ratio?  That is what my presentation is about.  I will basically be teaching other math teachers several activities to do in their classrooms that have to do with the Golden Ratio/Rectangle.  They will be learning about Fibonacci's rabbits and the European villages along with how the Golden Ratio is found in nature, architecture, music and art!   I took an interest in this concept a few years ago and the more I read about it, the more I discover.  The excitement is setting in as I have a time slot on Thursday morning - opening day of the conference.  I'm honored to share my workshop with other teachers as well as attend many workshops to learn from others.
