Math + Football
I recently ran across an interesting article complete with video from Sports Illustrated called, “A Calculated Decision: Why John Urschel Chose Math Over Football.” There’s a powerful message at the end about choosing your own path in life that shines through. Plus, his passion for mathematics is inspiring. This would be a great piece to share with your students or could become the foundation of a great new lesson!

Minnesota STEM Resource Teacher Center
If you're looking for a resource to help you more fully understand the Minnesota Academic Standards in science and math, then check out the Minnesota STEM Resource Teacher Center. SciMathMN (a non-profit business) and the Minnesota Department of Education created the “frameworks” (resources) to help teachers easily translate Minnesota state standards into classroom practice.
From the login, you can search by subject and grade level to find clusters of standards for your courses. (If you don't already have one, you'll first need to create an account.) Within each cluster, you will find pages of information that will bring you deeper into those standards. It's under these heading that you will find a treasure trove of information:
To get a feel for this resource, click on one of the following hyperlinks for a sampling of standards that you teach:
If you would like to explore or discuss these resources with me, or should you like some help implementing these in your classroom, please reach out to me, Dan Devine, or an Instructional Coach. We'd love to help you!
