Warning: The lists on this page have not been updated since January of 2008. For instance, my blog reader now follows
175 215about 350 math related blogs. (And, unfortunately, boasts 408943-and-counting unread posts — aaargh!) The list below doesn’t even come close to doing justice to the math blogging world. My sincere apologies, and I will rectify the situation one of these days… If you write a blog that you think my readers would enjoy, feel free to leave your link in a comment.
I confess: I am a FlyLady drop-out. Housecleaning has never been my strong point. But I read 50 Tips to Unclutter Your Blog, and I thought Skellie had some good points. I hate crowded sidebars, and moving my blogroll to a separate page sounded like a great way to declutter.
All of the following are blogs I have enjoyed at least a few times. Some link to me, and some don’t, and no doubt there are blogs that link to me but aren’t included here. There are more blogs in the world than anyone with a life can read on a regular basis. If you take the time to browse around, however, I think you will find something that strikes your fancy.
I gave up keeping track of homeschooling and teacher blogs, but you can find many great ones each week in the Blog Parties for Teachers list midway down my sidebar. And if you’re looking for good math blogs, I highly recommend you visit the Math Carnivals!!!
(Or you can scroll down…and down…and down…and down…like Alice…)
- All in the family
My kids’ blogs, which count as part of their homeschool language program. Well, at least Kitten’s blog does — the others have all graduated from high school now.
- Blogging about math
My favorite blogs by math teachers, the guys and gals that make me think.
- College & The Years After
Niner (pronounced Neener), who takes the photos [I used to use] for my blog header, has started a new blog. She originally called it 19 & Still Alive, because “the world doesn’t end when you’re 16 if you don’t go to Prom or don’t get your driver’s license. (I never went to Prom, and I didn’t go through Driver’s ED until 17, but I’m alive, amazingly.)”
- Chicken Scratchings
My teen son has a quirky sense of humor, and I enjoyed his fractured fairy tales. But shortly after starting the blog, he took up guitar, and I couldn’t get him to stop playing that long enough to type up a new post. Now he has gotten himself a camcorder for Christmas, so maybe he’ll come up with some more Chickenfoot Films videos instead.
- Kitten’s Purring
My youngest daughter, who had great fun picking out her online name: Princess Kitten. She was writing some cute animal stories, but then she got addicted a couple of those lo-o-o-ong book series from the library. It was so much easier to read something than to face that blank screen and write! Now that NaNoWriMo has re-inspired her, we may see a few more entries over the coming months.
- Moonlight Press
My eldest daughter finally joined in the blogging fun. She’s writing a novel — a nice way to blow off stress from her university classes — so this blog is dedicated to her fantasy world. (And anything else she ends up wanting to write about.)
- Niner’s SnapFair
The daughter who supplies my header photos started a blog to show off her pictures. Her photography skills continue to improve, and her sense of humor comes through in the stories that accompany each photo. This blog hasn’t been updated in ages, as she finds it easier to share her photos with friends on Facebook instead.
My favorite blogs by math teachers, the guys and gals that make me think. These are my top reads on Bloglines.
- Drat These Greeks!
Myrtle is teaching proof-based algebra to her pre-teen son, and she seems to be doing a good job. I love her tagline: “Three people in my immediate family have advanced math degrees but all I got was this lousy blog.”
Math lessons, presentation tips, and more — always interesting. I am looking forward to trying Dan’s Graphing Stories lesson with my junior high students next semester.
- Homeschool Math
“I love teaching and I love math.” Maria is a lady after my own heart. She is also the author of the Math Mammoth books. If you are a homeschooler or afterschooler frustrated with your math curriculum, you might want to check these out.
If I was stranded on a desert island with nothing to read but three blogs, JD2718 would be one of them. At least then I would have the time to fully enjoy his puzzles.
- Mathematical paintings and sculptures
New in 2007. Check out this beautiful Celtic Möbius strip.
My other choice of math blog if I ever find myself stranded on a desert isle. Puzzles, investigations, and lots of things to learn about math. I couldn’t begin to pick a favorite post to link — go browse for yourself.
- Ramblings of a Math Mom
Another math-loving mom who coaches students for math competitions. I wish I could sit in on her middle-school lessons.
- Text Savvy
Insight about math and teaching from a textbook author and editor, plus a bonus: brainteasers.
- The Exponential Curve
Dan teaches math at Downtown College Prep charter high school, where the target student is low-skilled and of the first generation to go to college. What a challenge!
- think again!
Two of my favorite things: puzzles and quotations. Click. Browse. Enjoy.
- Wild About Math!
A very new site, but already chock-full of useful content. I am keeping an eye on this one.
And here are more sites that talk about math (without getting so advanced that I’m totally lost), or about teaching math, or that at least mention math every so often. Too many interesting blogs, too little time…
