I’ve been reading a bit about concept cartoons and think they could be really useful for teaching math. I’ve already been using a similar technique which I have been calling “who is right” problems. I have used these to good effect to highlight common misconceptions in different areas.

Concept cartoons are a simplified and more accessible way of presenting the same material.

The problem, as usual, is a lack of available free resources for teachers. So, if there is anyone out there in blog land, I thought we could start sharing some concept cartoon files. I’m not sure if this blog site supports uploading files, but I will try.

If anyone out there responds showing an interest in sharing I will be happy to set up some other share site to use if needed.

Here is a pdf version of a smartboard cartoon I made (I can’t seem to share smartboard files here).
