I feel really excited to use these principles and strategies to teach math going into my first year teaching. I never considered myself to be a “math person,” but I feel that my own personal feelings about math would have been drastically different if the teaching approach was done like this.
When the videos spoke about linear equations and graphing I instantly felt my anxiety rise with panic about math, but after going through the process I feel much more confident and I understand it in a way I didn’t before! I can’t wait to shift my math teaching to align with these principles so my students can feel this same relief and boost in confidence!
