    Often a resources is considered by math teachers as the manipulative, or the text book, or the student workbook and time allow with effort are spent making sure the resource is quality. The emphasis is on the material or the program rather the learning and teaching relationship. This is the quality resource… the interaction between student and teacher. The crafting of the lesson, the teacher’s ability to engage the student and to guide the understanding of those critical connections. I have encouraged teachers who are looking for the resource to teach mathematics to focus on curriculum outcomes rather than using the textbook or newest computer program. I have heard teachers say I can’t teach fractions for example because they don’t have a certain resource. The fundamental shift in understanding the teacher- student relationship is the quality resource is greatly needed.
