This month, our ** Math Teachers at Play** blog carnival switched to a once-a-month schedule. We’ll publish the third Friday of each month — which is this week!

Teachers, homeschoolers, or anyone else who enjoys playing around with math: **Wednesday night is the deadline** to send in your thoughts, ideas, tips, or tricks about math using this handy submission form. Posts must be relevant to students or teachers of preK-12th grade mathematics. Old posts are welcome, as long as they haven’t been published in past editions of this carnival. Most bloggers have interesting gems buried in our archives. Why not dust one off and share it anew?

## Hosts Needed

With the schedule change, I also need to rebuild the queue for hosting the ** Math Teachers at Play**. If you blog about teaching or learning in grades K-12, and if you write about math at least occasionally, I would love to have you consider hosting the carnival sometime. Here’s how to sign up:

- Check out the schedule on the “future hosts” tab at the MTaP home page,
- pick a month that fits your schedule,
- and then let me know.

And don’t worry if you’ve never hosted a blog carnival before — it’s easy, fun, and great publicity for your blog! I’ll send you a detailed email of instructions to get you started.

I almost became a maths teacher once. I would have joined this if I had made it last time.

Hi, Zee!

You don’t have to be a math teacher to join in the carnival, but you do need to write about K-12th grade math — teaching it, or learning it, or just playing around with it for fun.

If no one else signs up for December before you post this carnival, I’d be happy to host December.
