My name is Julie Reulbach and I love to teach! I am currently teaching AP Calculus AB at a private school in North Carolina. Previously, I taught 6th and 7th grade math at an project-based private school.
I have a BS in mathematics from Marshall University in WV and a MaEd from Wake Forest University in NC. I have taught in public, private, and charter schools, as well as community college. Early in my career I left teaching for a few years to try out the “business world”, where I worked as a Research Director for Time Warner Cable’s advertising division and an a Research Analyst for American Express. I enjoyed the work, but my heart called me back to teaching!
I love getting involved and helping other teachers! I am a Desmos Fellow, Cohort 1, and love speaking about math education at conferences. I am passionately involved with the amazing #MTBoS, MathTwitterBlogosphere (Math OR Tweeting OR Blogging) community. I love to bring knowledge of the #MTBoS to others through the Exploring the MTBoS initiatives. I also love to participate at Twitter Math Camp (#TMC) and regularly tweet using the #Alg2Chat and #Alg1Chat hashtags. This past summer, I was fortunate enough to give a keynote at TMC18 on Teacher Leadership.
I hope that this blog will help out other teachers! You can also follow me on Twitter as @jreulbach.

Based on a work at https://ispeakmath.wordpress.com.
I love the fact that you decided to call your blog “I Speak Math”, although I would change that to “I Speak Maths”, being British! I’d love to know why you chose that as your title, because I firmly believe that mathematics is a language, and that many of the problems that everyone has with mathematics is down to the fact that it is not taught as though it were a language. Anyway, that is my theory! My main research interest is the effect that the language used to teach mathematics has on the actual learning… Welcome to the world of blogging, and Twitter. I’ll look forward to seeing you on #mathchat sometime!
P.S. You might enjoy my post: http://colintgraham.wordpress.com/2010/07/18/mathematics-for-speakers-of-other-languages/
Thanks for the comment. I chose that name because so many students can do the math, but cannot talk the math. If I say, “you cannot reduce that because it is part of a term” I get blank stares. If I SHOW them what I mean they get it. I believe that many math teachers teach the math but then rely on the shortcuts. These shortcuts eliminate the “language” of math. What I would like to do is to bring the language of mathematics back to students. I am with you. It will be vocabulary intensive and like learning a different language. But, I believe that imprecise language can cause much confusion. My favorite example is “reducing” a fraction instead of “simplifying”. The value is NOT reduced, it is the same. The numbers are just smaller (simpler).
You have a very interesting theory and I would love to hear how it turns out!
Off subject, here, but I’m trying to prepare for the Praxis II 5161 math certification test and was wondering if you know of any math teachers who recently got their certifications by the alternate route process. Thanks for any info.
I’m so sorry but I don’t.
When did you write your first blog? It appears to be recently…
I have 3 girls 8, 6, and 3 and am 7 months pregnant. I taught algebra as an adjunct at community college for the last 12 months and feel I have found my calling! I cannot believe how much I enjoy it! But more about me and my issues later… =-)
I perused a few of your homework posts and I, too, have struggled with this. I refuse to grade or give any points towards it on the basis that I teach at college and adults are paying money to be there. (Similarly, I do not feel it is appropriate to give points for attendance, but again this is another discussion entirely.) However, if it is not graded, students don’t bother to do it. I agree with your assigning the odds philosophy, but it is still hard to know how many problems are enough to know the students get it.
One (seemingly obvious?) solution is to use some software that allows students to do “randomly generated” problems where each student has different numbers, but the same type and difficulty of problem. The software immediately “grades” the problem for you and the student. I require 80% off the hmwk to be correct to get credit for the hmwk — trying to get mastery.
Students can practice as much (or little) as they choose since the numbers are randomly generated. If a student gets 50%, they can review and practice and then try again until the 80% is achieved.
Of course, I do not know if your school has the funds, etc. to support this. Also, it can be hard to “go over homework” when everyone has different numbers for the same problem.
Just curious if you have ever looked into homework software such as this before and your thoughts.
So nice to find your blog!
PS Do you teach high school level?

Hi Julie/Mrs. Reulbach! This is one of your former students at FCD 🙂 I have great memories of your math class, and it’s amazing to find your blog. After high school, I got my undergrad. and masters degree from Virginia Tech. I taught elem. special ed. for 3 years. Then for 4 years, I helped teachers integrate technology into their curriculum through projects in the classroom, workshops, and lab lessons. After switching counties to be closer to home, I just took a position as a special ed./math teacher in a public middle school near Richmond, VA. I was searching for ideas for my new role, and came across this blog with a profile picture that looked very familiar! Sounds like you’re doing very well. Thank you so much for being an inspiration to your students and other teachers!
Carrie (Danforth) S.
It is so wonderful to hear from you! I am so glad that you are a teacher. I remember how sweet you were and your amazing smile – I am sure that your students love you! I am new to all of this technology and just finished my first year at a project based school. I bet that you have fabulous ideas and projects and would love to talk to you more and share ideas. Are you on Twitter or Google+ yet? There are many math educators (and technology educators) on both and we are always sharing ideas and brainstorming. I am jreulbach on Twitter and will send you a G+ invite. Please come on over and I will introduce you to everyone. : )
Great! I just accepted your Google+ invite. I have a login for twitter, so I’ll try that as well. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to catching up!
I am a retired university math professor and I have had many, many students who were ill-prepared for college mathematics (in one incoming freshman class, 60% placed in High School Remedial Math).
Most of those students had a bad attitude towards math and lacked confidence with it. According to my analysis, in general, their problems could be traced all the way back to elementary school.
I am now dedicated to developing a website where parents and teachers can send their students to make sure they have mastered the basics at their grade level. This will give them confidence, which will generate a good attitude towards math.
The student goal is simply to color a grid and the parent/teacher involvement is simply to encourage that and to enjoy watching the grid fill with the proper colors.
Students get caught up in the grid-coloring process and they enjoy the celebration animations that follow each improvement. Parents and teachers love the simple colorized on-screen progress reports.
The site is evolving at http://www.arithmequick.com . If you would like to evaluate it, I would be happy to give you a free account to check it out.
Sincerely . . . Chuck
Hello! I am currently teaching 2nd grade and will be looping up to 3rd grade next year. It is my 2nd year teaching and I love everyday and every adventure. I really enjoy reading your blog and getting ideas… It’s such a unique profession that we can all share and grow with each other. I’m nervous about the stress of high stakes testing next year. If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know. I am going to a Singapore math workshop this summer as well. Thanks for sharing your blog and experience!
I just noticed that my reply to you did not post back in March. I’m sorry! I’m so glad that you found my blog. Our lower school is using part of the Singapore math for their curriculum this coming year. I’m excited to see what it is all about as I have heard great things about it. I may even get to attend a training before school starts. Let me know how you like it.
I’m a 4th grade math teacher in Texas! I just came across your blog and LOVE what I see so far (and the title, as I strive every day to get my students to SPEAK math!). I look forward to reading more!!
My brother lives in Texas! I love it there! Thanks for reading my blog – I’m so glad you are enjoying it. 🙂
Hello!I’m a 6th,7th and 8th grade math and science teacher in Italy. I was very impressed by the passion you put in your job. I love my profession too and I’d like to Know something about your way of teaching. If anyone want to share some experiences with me , my e-mail is email@example.com .
Sorry for my bad use of your language.
Hey Sara! I just noticed that my reply to you did not get posted back in April (iPhone app?). I would love to talk with you about teaching. I’m on Twitter so you can ask me a question anytime. I would love to see how things are done differently in Italy as well.
What a surprise! I was looking for your reply when I wrote to you and I didn’t find it.
I followed your blog anyway and only now I realize that you answered to me. I’ m so happy!
I like the way you teach as it seems to me your activities are always funny and linked to experience.
I’m trying to do something like this in my classes too.
I just found your site and it warmed my heart to see my blog on your list. THANK YOU!
I talked about differentiating algebra today… I hope you’ll stop by and visit again someday.
Thanks again for including me.
Finding JOY in 6th Grade
Yeah! I’m so excited to find all of these great middle school blogs lately! Most of my Twitter PLN is high school. 🙂
I love to find other bloggers who have are passionate about math. I teach remedial math to college students who I classify as “Mathphobics”. Most of them hate math, and my goal is to change their attitude by the end of the semester. They want to learn, but just need many different strategies outside of the book. Thanks for sharing your passion as well.
Thank you for your comment. I taught students from the inner city my first few years of teaching. Many of them hated math and they all hated traditional instruction. They did not start learning (or learning to like math) until I started experimenting with different strategies. I always say that they taught ME how to teach. Good luck with your students and changing their attitudes. It can be done! 🙂

Hi Julie! I just found your blog through a post on Pinterest. I haven’t been on Facebook or Pinterest long…just this year. I thought I was going to have another year to prepare for teaching a class and remembering the math but a local academy contacted me about filling their vacancy for a high school math teacher (their teacher left unexpectedly). I have been out of college since 1999 and basically haven’t used my math degree since then. I am very nervous but I want to engage the students with new teaching strategies like those you have suggested on your blog. I also agree that students need to learn how to speak math…understanding word problems is one of the hardest concepts for students to grasp. Thank you very much for sharing your ideas and beliefs! Also, any suggestions you may have for the high school level will be appreciated!
That sounds very exciting. It’s hard not to be nervous with your first teaching job but I am sure you will do great! Are you on Twitter? I get some of my best ideas (and support on those hard days) from the math teachers there. Also, Bowman composed some letters from amazing teachers on his blog. They are written to first year teachers. The link is http://bowmandickson.com/2012/06/23/letters-to-a-first-year-teacher-the-compilation/.
My biggest piece of advice was something I once heard and have found to be very true in the classroom. The person doing the most work (talking, working problems) is the one doing the most learning. As the teacher, this should not be you.
Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
My name is April and I came across your blog a few weeks ago. I just graduated this past May and embarking on my job search to land my first teaching gig. I love math and finding ways to integrate technology into math. Your blog really fits my needs. Your blog could have definitely help me during my student teaching. Your blog have inspire me to find better ways to teach math as well as refuel my passion for math. Keep up the awesome work!!
Hi April! I’m so glad that my blog could help you. There is a blogpost that contains letters addressed to new teachers. I’ll find it and post the link here so you can read them. They are fabulous! We are hiring at my school in Davidson, NC. It is The Woodlawn School. Good luck with your job search!
I am so glad that I found you on twitter and have started to follow your blog! I have taught fifth grade for the past decade and am making a change this year to teach math 6 and 7. I am excited and nervous and overwhelmed all at the same time! I am eager to follow many incredible teachers as I transition into this new part of my life.
P.S. I have two boys- 2 and 5- so I can completely relate to the energy and busy schedules they bring;)
Hi Christie, I’m so glad you found me and are enjoying my blog! You will love 6th and 7th, there are so many fun math activities that you can do with that age! Please feel free to ask me questions on Twitter when they come up. 🙂 I have a growing list of middle school math teachers on there. It is very exciting!
Here is the link to Bowman Dickson’s “Letters to New Teachers: A Compilation”. http://bowmandickson.com/2012/06/23/letters-to-a-first-year-teacher-the-compilation/
I highly recommend that any new teacher read these letters. Also, know that we are here for you, to answer any questions that you may have or even just to listen when you have a bad day. You can find me on Twitter at @jreulbach anytime you want to talk or say hi! 🙂
I am Sherylyn from Guam and I started teaching here in 2009. I teach 7th grade Math and I am pursuing my Masters degree. I’ve checked several blogs and I find your own really interesting. I found myself reading in your website for how many hours and lost track of time LOL. Anyways, I really learned and acquired more ideas for me to incorporate in my class and I’ve never been more excited to go back to work 🙂 Thank you…and please continue to be an inspiration to all teachers all over the world.
Welcome to my blog! Thank you for your wonderful comment. I am so glad that you found activities that helped you. I would love for you to jump in and join us as well!
Hello Julie – I love your blog! Math is so important and as a mother of a 10 year old boy, I see every day how creative teaching engages him and encourages him to tackle difficult concepts. Thank you for your work!
I am a documentary filmmaker working on a project about a group of middle school-aged African American boys who attend a math camp each summer from 8th – 12th grade. You can read about our project here: http://www.tinyurl.com/strongmoveskickstarter. I would be grateful for any help you might be able to give us in spreading the word about our project.
Wishing you all the best in the great work that you are doing!
P.S. I’m hoping you have a chance to review this before it appears on your site! I tried to find a way to email you privately. If this appears without review, I apologize in advance!
I love your site! I’m a middle school math teacher and found you on pinterest. I saw a foldable on slope but then when I click on to your page I can’t seem to find it. Can you lead me in the right direction? Would love to see how you created it.
Hey Kathy! So glad I could help. 🙂
Was it this one? https://ispeakmath.wordpress.com/2012/03/07/all-about-slope-foldable/
Hey Julie, I finally read your “About Me” and saw that you went to Wake Forest–I went to Wake Forest undergrad and got my MaED from there, too! Crazy that it’s such a small world (you blogged about my blog in the New Blogger Initiation). Go Deacs!!
Awesome!! What year? I’ve been back twice to talk to the MaEd students! Did I talk to your class?
I was class of 2010, I don’t *think* you spoke to our class, but I could be wrong!
No. I visited summer of 2010 and 2011 to speak to the new students so you wouldn’t have been there. It’s such a great program! Did you present in Greensboro at the NCCTM? I went to that in 2009.
Yes, I actually did present–I gave a lesson I created about sound and logarithms (it was weird never having been a teacher and showing teachers lessons…)
Oh, but my wife was actually a new teacher in 2010, although we were still on our honeymoon at the beginning of July–do you remember when you presented? Was it only to the math student teachers? (She teachers Social Studies.)
Then I did meet you! I was w Dr. McCoy. I was in the room when you all were setting up! She introduced me to everyone.
And, it was early summer when I visited Wake in 2010 so I probably did miss your wife.
That’s awesome!! I’m sorry that I do not remember meeting anyone in particular–I was probably a little nervous right before my first presentation at a teaching conference, but I’m glad you remembered! Thanks again for helping with the Blogging Initiation!

My name is Khushali and I work with Relay Graduate School of Education designing the math courses that teachers in our program take. I’m currently working on a course that covers numbers and operations, and would love to be able to share your post and foldable for using “GEMS” in the classroom. If possible, I’d like to post the GEMS template in our online interface. Teachers enrolled in our program have access to this online system through an individual log in and password. The post would also include the original blog post and credits to the post. Please let me know if you have any questions!
That would be fine with me. I’m so glad that it will help your students!
Hi Julie, My name is Jennifer Richard and I found your webpage from a link on Pinterest. I am looking for a printable on your website regarding “Words into Math”. I was wondering if you might not be able to send me that link…
I’m so sorry that you had trouble! I embedded a pdf onto the page so it would be easier to download.
Hi Jennifer: I am so excited I found your “I speak Math” blog on pinterest. I teach 8th grade Algebra and Pre-Algebra, love my job and always looking to improve. I love your creativity and philosophy. I will be “stealing” lots of your ideas :>)…I also went to WFU (a long time ago) and taught in Charlotte until we moved back north to the gloom and cold. Can you tell I miss NC?
Thanks for sharing all of your awesome ideas! I had never heard of desmos.com but it is now going to be my new favorite website…so cool!
Hi Dianne! I went to WFU a long time ago too! lol! Were you in the Math Ed program or the Math Grad program? I moved to Ohio after living in NC for a while and could not wait to get back. I got really spoiled by the mild weather and absolutely hate the cold! Thanks for saying Hi! 🙂
Excited math blog julie.. I enjoy it.. I always excited with teacher who consistent in blogging to share their knowledge… 😀

I’m a mathematics education phd student looking into mathematics teacher blogs as a source of professional development. Would you be willing to answer a set of questions about your blogging experience via email?
Thanks in advance!
Yes Judy. I would be happy to. 🙂
I am a huge fan of your blog, I was wondering if you have tips on how you broke down your 6th grade school year – what units did you start with? Thank you!!
Hi, Julie — Great blog! I also keep a blog at angymath.com on my rather idiosyncratic take on the difficulties and disconnects we have teaching community college math, when so many of our students are lacking junior-high-school or even middle-school arithmetic skills.
More to that point, I recently developed a site to give laser-focus practice on those specific skills that I see to be the most common stumbling blocks (such as times tables, negative numbers, and order-of-operations). Designed to give a quick quiz on those skills that can be used every day on a desktop or a mobile device as students are commuting. Hope it helps our students,
Sorry, correct link would be:
Hi Julie. I have a question about grading that I hope you can help with. I am a student teacher and was out sick Tuesday. My CT gave 2 of my classes a mid-chapter quiz but didn’t realize we had not covered the last section. I told the students we would take a different mid-chapter quiz once we completed that section and I would take the better grade of the two. Well, I did not think about it beforehand and I gave them a new mid-chapter quiz that only had 14 questions and the original quiz had 25 questions. How do I compare the 2 quizzes to see how the students improved? Thanks so much.
I would like to email you but couldn’t find your email address anywhere in your blog!
Such a great blog. It makes me miss teaching days. For any of you awesome math bloggers who would be willing to conduct a free product giveaway of my company’s “The Six Million Digits of Pi Poster”, please let me know. It’s a wonderful educational tool since it gets kids to be interested in pi and using a magnifier – reading the almost 6 million microscopic digits that the 18×24″ poster contains. All I ask is a mention and a link on your blog.
Please take a look, there’s no other math poster like it.
Thanks for your time.
Julie – Hi ! Geostruct is now a web page on the net. Do have a go and let me know what you think about it. There is one important thing about it, which is that I see the coordinate system as something which is chosen carefully and applied to the real world situation, and not the conventional way round. You will see what I mean…
Anyway, here goes:
to get geostruct from the net
and to download the .doc basics file

Hey Ms Julie,
Hope you’re having a great day!
I’m doing an expert roundup on my site and I think many new Math teachers using education technology products in their classroom like me would love to know your answer to this question :
If you could only use 3 Education technology tools/apps/sites for your teaching which 3 tools would you choose? e.g. WolframAlpha, KhanAcademy and Inside Mathematics.
Thanks in advance!
As soon as I’m done compiling the results, I would inform and link back to your blog.

Julie, I spend the normal amount of ADD time searching your site for posts relating to “Why we show our work” i did not find in my incredibly lazy attempt anything specifically targeting this math content and attitude hurdle. Do you have any blogs or other content to help teach “Why we show our work” ? I am thinking of writing a whitepaper to help teach/learn this domain after recent experiences with my son’s Algebra teacher. In History, we worship the kid who will not accept facile facts, but the reasoning of why we learn to show our work seems to get short shrift. The kids who get it do not need the lesson, the kids who as math savants (in their own heads, forgive the pun) need desperately to have access to the many faceted habit we are trying to create.
Sorry to post in a comment, couldn’t find your email…
I’m the creator of Tessalation!, a children’s picture book about patterns and wonder. This is a very special project to me, since it combines my love of pattern and my desire to encourage girls’ interest in math and science.

Pingback: First blog post (Goals 2017-2018)…a little late to the party – Site Title
I love your blog and all the resources/information you have offered! I attended your presentation this past Fall on Assessment with Desmos at NCCTM in Greensboro, NC. I was wondering if you could answer a question about the Desmos Test Mode App on Google Chrome. There is not a “Start Test” button when students launch the app; therefore, the computers are NOT locked on the Desmos screen throughout the test. However, when the Desmos Test Mode App is downloaded on an iPhone/Android, the “Start Test” button is visible and their phone is locked until they complete the test. Do you have any information about the Test Mode App on Google Chrome?
Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas! I’m looking at the “Math Survivor” game and I don’t see any explanation of how the “voting people off” works. Maybe because I never watched Survivor, but I don’t understand what role that plays in the game.
Hi! Is this your quote? – “As the year starts and we begin to see the amazing things other teachers are doing, please remember we can’t do all things. We each do different things. That doesn’t make any of us less than anyone else. There’s no one way to be a great teacher. You are enough. – Julie Reulbach”
Hi! Yes, that is me. It was from my Keynote at Twitter Math Camp. 🙂
It’s a wonderful message! I had saved it. I was thinking how fitting it is for this time in our lives too. During Codiva-19 and we begin to see…
Hello! I am wondering if you could share how to access the geometry tool in the activity builder? I have seen several shared activities with geometry included, but can’t figure out where this exists in my custom activities. Thanks!!!
You have to go to Desmos Labs to turn the Geometry feature on first. You can find Desmos Labs by clicking your name at the top of the screen.
THANK YOU!!!!! I have been trying to figure this out for almost 2 hours. ❤
❤️ Dang technology!
I am really curious what your actual AP Calculus results are. You said they did well, but how well? Please email me with the details.
