Teach Well: Become a Math Expert

As I think ahead to all the goals and efforts for 2017-2018 school year, the overarching goal is to become a math expert and teach math well.

What does this mean in terms of prep?

The following actions will lead me there:

  • Become more familiar with Jo Boaler's work via the website YouCubed and her online courses. 
  • Update the learning/teaching website links and materials for each unit. 
  • Review and analyze standardized test scores to look for areas for improvement in 2017-2018.
  • Review Khan Academy and TenMarks with greater scrutiny with an eye on how these online applications may support student learning. 
  • Think about room set-up and draft grants that can help to inspire students with great signage as well as provide good spaces and structures for optimal math learning.
  • Read math books such as The Joy of X.
This will be the mainstay of my math study. Onward.
