Hello :

My name is Myrielle, I am a middle school math teacher in Florida. I would like collaborate with you. Let me know when you want to start.
Sooner the better. is there a certain concept you like to work on? Is there a certain web tool you want to use?
I see that you are doing a stock market activity. I teach 6th grade in Indiana and am having my students do a stock market graphing activity as well. I would love to discuss this with you on how you started out with this project so that I could tweek mine. I didn't want to give the kids an amount of money, so I allowed them to choose from six different stocks and they needed to buy a total number of 100 shares of stock. I think that it would be interesting to have a blog discussion.
We started off with $25000, they couldn't have more money left than the costs of one share of the cheapest stock. They filled out a stock request form My STocks Form which sent everything to me though Google Docs. The project lasted a month and we followed the stocks about two-three times a week, they created excel sheets to track the progress. Last night and today they created charts to display what happened during the course of the project.

I think it would be great to have a blog discussion, or even use an elluminate session.

Let me know.
Hi, Brian.

I teach a host of classes in West Michigan including a 7th grade math. I just signed up here and thought I might be setting up a ning room for my own class. It's going to take a little to get started, but I am interested in having kids collaborate from a distance.
Let us know when you guys are ready and we can work something out
Sound good. I will be in touch.
