One of challenges of teaching math is being able to satisfying answer the question ‘why’? Before we can even answer the question for students, we have to answer the question for ourselves. Why does the math work this way? It’s much easier to teach a student how to do a problem. It’s a bit harder to explain to them why it works the way it does. It’s even more challenging to help them discover the why for themselves.
What do you do if you don’t have a planning period? How do you help students master a skill after they’ve failed a test? How do you correct students when they’re wrong? Any advice for a first time long-term sub? We explore these questions into today’s Q&A show.
