Wow, what a Genius! Stephen Hawking has passed, but his legacy certainly lives on. Last year, PBS aired a special series called GENIUS. Commissioned by PBS with National Geographic as its international broadcast partner, the series was presented and narrated by Hawking. In each episode, a different group of ordinary people were challenged to think like the greatest scientific minds in history in order to solve some of humanity’s most enduring questions. The GPB Media blog has lesson ideas to go with each episode as well as lesson plans to learn more about Hawking's life and achievements. Even if you do not have the DVD, here are several previews and resources to promote thinking and discussions: Happy Pi Day, and RIP Stephen Hawking!

Wow, it's almost March! Time for March Madness with Math! There are several math practice sites and programs available, but some do not include diagnostics, some do not offer leveled assessments, some do not provide activities for differentiation, and some are extremely pricy. Prodigy includes a diagnostic test to place students in an appropriate level, teacher reports, and embedded assessments. Students move through levels in a game-like atmosphere and advance only when skills have been mastered. If more practice is required, students receive additional activities to help them "level up." And, Prodigy is free. Teachers do need to set up an account, but that's free, too, and there is an option to sign in with Google also. A UCM student says the game is so engaging, her students even ask to play it during recess! Happy (almost) March!
