Calling All Math Teachers/ Calling for Change

Do you teach math? Is your teaching of math much like the

instruction you had as a student? (i.e: master the facts, speed

is the goal, learn this process, follow the book’s method,

work quietly/don’t disturb others, etc., etc.).

Do you believe some people have a “math brain” and

others don’t?

Why are US students still scoring well below other

countries in mathematics?

Are any of your students saying, “I just don’t get it!”

Well, this video may help you to sort out how to make

sense of the Common Core Mathematical Practices.

As Grace Kelemanik says, “There are so many of them,

and so little time.”[1] See video link below...
