How We Teach Math
For a few years now, there has been a lot of discussion on how we teach math. I have attended in-services (for administrators) on how we should be teaching math. This has lead to the recent implementation/renewal of math in Sask. with the “Math Makes Sense” program and Math Pathways for senior students next year (Gr. 10 only. Pathways to be implemented over a three year period).
I read Dan Meyers blog and he has some interesting approaches to how we should teach math. Recently, he spoke at the TED x NYC Conference and I found the video of his talk. Take 11 minutes of your time and share some thoughts in the comment section, at the end of this post.
