Times Tables Videos, Powerpoints and quizzes, in process. 

The "real" introduction page, also in process!  


Illinois Digital Learning Lab has launched and it doesn't look like Content Creation will be the focus.  Nonetheless and allthemore, my  goal is to have this sharable by 10/16, our next cohort meeting. 


Illinois Digital Learning Lab is "Go!"   I've got all the quizzes updated. Now to check the links and update the side bars :)   


Lots less down time, and the college has deemed what we do nonessential.  Still, improvements in the quizzes.  

I've put in a proposal for the 2020 Open Ed virtual conference -- a "Gallery" that I figured was the equivalent of a "poster session." Also to Illinois Digital LEarning Lab for their adult ed projects; I am wondering if designing a course in using tech (e.g. speech recognition) for academics would work there... or math of course :) 

Mostly I'm struggling to find time to really get traction. Here goes!  I've got the "Twos" page updated with the new format and link to the "quiz with icons."   Maybe tonight or tomorrow I can do that with at least 2 more?  


Okay, going to get some stuff up so for a bit many many links might be busted.  In, where I learn the stuff to make the pages... I can work on a page, but not a whole site, so relative links don't exist.  

    To further complicate, they sometimes don't work in the editor on my site, though they'll work out online.   So I have to upload the file to my host, then edit the relative links, then go see if they're actually working.... and everything's case sensitive... and there are other thigns to do in life ;)   The sidebar links will happen later...


Lots of updates -- fair amount of "down time" which is typical for summer but even more so when students have to find me on Zoom. I'm uploading two new quizzes -- one with random questions for the rules-based ones, and then I"ve done quizzes in order with icons.   I figured out how to build in a little bit of review but I don't know if I've done it for all of them ;)  I *want* to build in more review at the end of the ones you missed, and I want to have one where the 'visual' is on the number chart, and I want to (this one first but I don't want to do it 'til I've made a few more mistakes 

12/30/19 update:

I'm learning this stuff. It's lots easier than back in 1977 :)   Links to quizzes are down in the outline...   Next step (while I'm also learning four other potentially useful things, including incorporating JavaScript into Geogebra) is to make them end properly so you know "go to the next one."   Eventually there will be scoring and hopefully a variety of practice; Yes, this might change while you're visiting!   

I'm @geonz on twitter and I'm there a lot with the #mtbos (Math Twitter Blog-O-Sphere); I'm on some math and special education groups on Facebook.   I update with boring regularity (especially if frustrated) on my WordPress blog

My "day job" is supporting students at Parkland College, especially with pre-college-level ("developmental") courses, especially math. My "project idea" is described on the Rebus Community site.   


  Yes, these are all open source.   So -- feel free to copy, use, revise anything -- that's why I'm putting it out there in this rough form.   You could probably do great things with it!   Or... we could get a grant and collaborate!   Right, Power in Numbers

  1. Introduction to the Mary Ellen Carter Academy Times Tables Course video 

Here are pages for each times table:










Sevens and Eights

Future Future:   Quizzes and games along the way ;)  No really they're there now :) :)  There will be more better ones... I have lots of ideas and only some of them require a mess of new learning on my part (I'll make some that start iwth a few at a time and then explore making them so you pick the ones to practice)...   but you can practice at lots of places online -- my favorite is at  MathIsFun.Com   Look for the "training" practice. 

Geogebra explorations 


  • Plop the Points!  

    • I know I've got a version with my avatar floating on the water ... somewhere... 
  • I'll put stuff here as I do it.   
  • We'll see how this whole idea of doing stuff on my website works.
