I’m always in awe of people who can make numbers feel like magic. This week, we get to peek into three classrooms where math teachers do just that: give us inspiration to start another year delighting in digits.
I was perusing some Teaching Channel videos this past week, and I found a wonderful back-to-school message from a special Tch
math teacher, Marlo Warburton. Her message about creating a positive classroom environment
reminds us that the most important decoration we’ll put in our classrooms this fall is our passion.
I’d also like to share a couple of math lesson ideas that will help get students quickly engaged in their learning. Both lessons align with the Common Core, so they are very focused on understanding
concepts, not just getting “right answers.”
In Lisa Bologna’s second grade math class, she uses games to teach almost every concept
, reminding us that “play” can help students cement their learning through keen engagement.
And, in Christopher Persaud’s high school math class, his students “win the lottery” as they learn functions. He’s tapped into the power of real-world scenarios
to help students own
