Besides the general inspiration, my one big thing that I am taking on this year is Number Talks. Chris Harris (my other new favourite person) led the discussion and really inspired me to start getting my kids to do more mental math. They are engaged, and I cannot wait to see how the whole year progresses. I can already see how it will enhance many of the topics that I will be teaching. The fact that kids are forced to talk, and discuss in mathematics, means that they are becoming stronger mathematicians every day! I love it.
