    I’m excited to hit the ground running on my first teaching position with these principles in mind. When hearing it all spelled out this way it just makes so much sense. I am not sure if I was ever taught linear relations in such a simple, yet incredibly effective, way. I can already tell that this course will help me teach math in a much better way than it was taught to me. I see no reason to not align our teaching methods with the most current learning psychology research. This was such an elegant way to teach this concept.

    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!
