This Week in Math Ed: August 26, 2016

I'm still in a period of catching up, but I'm almost there! Here are the top links from the week of August 19-25. The next TWiME will be stuffed full of all the other updates!

Math Ed Said

August 19: I mentioned this on the previous TWiME, but Robert Kaplinsky's "#ObserveMe" is worth mentioning again. Many of you must have felt the same way, as it was the most-shared post for the 19th as well.

August 20: Robert Kaplinsky's "#ObserveMe" was the most shared post again this day, but since I've already highlighted it twice I'll instead direct your attention to Dave Burgess's "Table Talk Math: Finally a Math Resource for Parents is Here!"
