Math is "boring" when students receive information. Math is "fun" when students have an experience. Math feels hard when students fail with information. Math feels rewarding when students fail with experience. One failure drives frustration the other drives learning.

Or what you think that the students should already know...we need to be better about avoiding the blame game from grade to grade

Same goes for math. Teach the mathematician in front of you through some mathematics.

Don’t forget support from society to change & grow. Constantly battling ppl blaming public edu for failing Ss but complaining about “this new math”

I feel strongly against departmentalizing in elementary. I’ve seen it attempted in various ways & don’t like any of them

I never had transparencies but I use Visavise markers to write on fraction tiles, counting chips, or anything else plastic to customize it to those Ss needs/skill

Just bought 5 of these tiles. It did not cost $14.95 (even before taxes) Why?

In my experience, Ss w/ poor number sense never relate to division rules. Number sense is a prerequisite

It took my supervisors some time to adjust. They had a lot of Qs for me at first. Once they sat through it, feeling uncomfortable, they saw how powerful it is to feel uncomfortable

Have you ever has another T watch you ask Ss a line of Qs to uncover misconceptions? It can be hard for the to not answer for them or watch me ask multiple Qs; like they want to rescue the Ss from me

I love thinking of the next question...it makes me feel incomplete not to be able to actually ask them

It’s possible. I might ask her to find the area of a 108x7 rectangle & see where that leads

I wonder if that is the last step that she felt like she understood what to do w/ the problem & went into survival mode. Do a lot with a bunch of numbers to “show your work”

How I know I’ve grown is that at one point I would have stopped listening when I saw that she did that. It does not match the steps that make sense to me. I used to miss so many opportunities to learn ab my Ss thinking

This sounds so familiar to me. This would be a typical response from any of my students
