In what ways do the five Math Minds principles resonate with your current views about teaching and learning mathematics?
The five Math Minds principles resonate deeply with my current views about teaching and learning mathematics. If we view the brain as an ecosystem, then learning all kinds of things is possible for all students. By creating lessons that consider limits of human working memory, and guide students to notice certain elements and describe relationships, students will be empowered to think mathematically.
In ways do they challenge your current views? In what ways do they prompt you to think about things you may not have considered before?
Teaching mathematics this way is something I have been interested in for some time. One challenge is how to find resources to support this kind of teaching, and what to do if parents or administrators do not agree or question the process.
