Kris - please feel free to copy and paste your comment up above in the Discussion forum - that was a GREAT ISSUE - you could even add a cover shot! That way it is archived for good in the forum above AND I can share it when I e-mail out a week in review because it will have a dedicated URL. Your share is totally within our sharing policy so please don't (ever) be timid about hyping a great resources from RS!

Flocab - don't hesitate to embed the video up above in the discussion forum so we can share the resource on a Week in Review - stuff on the wall gets buried over time!  Ryan

Anyone teaching Pythagorean Theorem? You've probably been searching high and low for a Pythagorean rap song, right? We've got you covered! Happy squaring!

Hi Rachelle - welcome to MC POP! Great question. Unfortunately, big questions on the comment wall are not easy for folks to respond to and get buried over time.

Would you consider moving this question above us to the discussion forum? When you post your ? above your "affinity group" peeps can give you feedback. Because forum ?s have URLs it will be in there for the next person with a similar ? AND I can broadcast the question to the whole Ning on crowdsource Tuesday.

Thanks for getting in the mix!

Hey everyone! I'm new to Making curriculum pop. It looks like you guys have some awesome ideas! I'm currently student teaching and trying to make a few of my lessons more engaging. The topics are simplifying fractions containing variables, zero and negative exponents, and scientific notation. These topics aren't the most interesting but I would like to make them. Any suggestions?

Oh wow, I didn't see the stem of this question from Shaughn. Unfortunately, things like this - when posted on the wall - tend to get buried / lost. For that reason Shaughn do consider re-posting the question up above us in the discussion forum as a crowdsource question. That way you have a dedicated URL and I can share your ? on a Crowdsource Tuesday!

The High School students I teach math to  have learning disabilities and they all seem to like music (various genres). How can I teach them how math is used in music?  Thank you
