In what ways do the five Math Minds principles resonate with your current views about teaching and learning mathematics?
I can see the concept of juxtaposing to be incredibly powerful in math education. As teachers, we need to be pointing out the differences that small changes create in the numbers. I’m excited to bring this into my classroom on Monday.
In ways do they challenge your current views?
I teach Special Ed, and thus far my students have benefitted from my incredibly explicit teaching where I show them the relationships. I’m looking forward to changing the focus and requiring students to find these connections with my teaching.
