Math in Museums – Field Trips and Vacations to Be Discussed on #HSMath

Today’s homeschool and renegade classroom teacher Tweet Chat #HSMath is today, Thursday, April 21 at 9pm CST. The topic is “Math in Museums – Field Trips and Vacations to Support Math Learning”

Here’s one of the early posts of this blog illustrating a math thing I learned at a museum. (Excuse the arithmetic error.)

Join us for the fun and learning – and don’t forget to use the hashtag#HSMath.

Here’s how you join the party…

You need a Twitter account. If you don’t have one click here to get one.

You’ll need a way to follow #HSMath separately from your other tweets (or you’ll go nuts). Some options are:

  • TweetChat – this types the #HSMath tag and follows the stream
  • What the Hashtag?! – this types the #HSMath tag and allows you to filter the stream and shorten URLs
  • TweetDeck – for Desktop, iPhone or iPad, you’ll have to add the #HSMath hashtag yourself
  • HootSuite – Good service, but you’ll have to add the #HSMath hashtag yourself on this one too
  • TweetGrid – a web-based dashboard that’s also an app for some smartphones, again you’ll need to add #HSMath on each tweet

The first two get you most directly to where you need to be to participate. If you have questions or are panicked, send me a note via twitter by clicking here.

And if you have a chance, please support Homeschool Math Chat by voting to give us authority andtweeting to your friends.
