#TMC15 Day 2 – Notes

It is true.  TMC is like drinking from a fire house.  These blogs of TMC15 are really just my own notes of the experience so that I would have a quick reminder of what I found really exciting and also a parking spot for links so I wouldn’t have to go hunt down the links in Twitter.

There is a Wiki with all of the materials …http://twittermathcamp.pbworks.com/w/page/66474056/TMC%20FrontPage

Before we started – It is beautiful
