5 Steps to Teaching Math Greatly

Posted on May 29, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , |


1.  Enjoy it. Find the fun in numbers.  Because if you Don’t, your students NEVER will:)

2. Learn it. (Study, buy the algebra book or the geometry book….by it in cartoons, buy it in the “for dummies” series,but it in the “painless” series, buy it in the middle school version, however you can get through it…but by a content strand at a time and master it).

3.  Find a great, fun, engaging way to teach it.

4.  Go to a math conference (local, regional, state, or national) http://www.nctm.org/meetings/

5.  Commit to “stretching your own pedagogy,” –often.

See some of the books:

Nicki …

as you know … Math is “Magic” for me … so I would have to add that great math teaching doesn’t necessarily come from “knowing” … it is from learning … as you put in #5 … “stretching” yourself . ..and if you can learn from a person who hated math as a kid .. the better you will learn ..

And .. always make it hands on … visual … relative … and of course, FUN!

and ai
