The importantthing

  1. 1. The important thing about mathematics is thatyou explore. There are right and wrong answersbut what is important is how you get there andunderstanding how you got there. We should allexplore the possibilities of math. - Andrew Bransford
  2. 2. The important thing about teaching mathematics isletting kids know they are participating in math theminute they open their eyes in the morning. It isclocks and sports and food and cooking… Math isexploring and estimating and generalizing andanalyzing and asking. It is natural to do these thingsand then we think about them and discuss themand learn from what other kids have to say. But theimportant thing about teaching math is letting kidsknow that they are doing math as soon as theyopen their eyes in the morning. - Doreen Broderick
  3. 3. The important thing about teachingmathematics is to have a core idea, encourageinvestigation of it, and return to the core idea.This pattern of teaching math is likeinvestigating a spoon – exploring all its qualitiesand returning to what’s essential about it – it issomething that you use. This is math. This ishow we explore it. This is how we use it. - Marion Gilliam
  4. 4. The important thing about teachingmathematics is to have students think aboutmath and to be able to explain their thinking totheir partner, their class, and their teacher. - Mary Gay Heagler
  5. 5. The most important thing to me about teachingmath is allowing and letting students solvethings on their own with a given amount ofinformation. The ways we solve things are/maybe different, but the thought of one beginningto become a better problem solver is somethingthe world really needs more of! - Kristian Kuhn

  11. 11. The most important thing about teachingmathematics is helping students feel like theycan use math to solve real world problems. - Renée Oakes
  12. 12. The important thing about teaching math ishaving flexibility in my teaching style andattitude. Flexibility allows students to discoverand respond to math in an investigative way…sometimes not the “right” way but the“learning” way. My style needs to be flexible asteaching provides us with many differentlearning styles and students from many differentbackgrounds. - Lachelle Ogden
  13. 13. The important thing about teachingmathematics is that math is all around us. Weneed to make multiple connections with ourlessons to the world around us. - Jeff Risher
  14. 14. The important thing about teaching math isknowing your students’ strengths andweaknesses. - OlesyaToloknova
  15. 15. The important thing about teaching math isrecognizing the try! Students may not always getto the correct answer, but it is important torecognize their attempt, notice what they didand acknowledge it before helping them to theright direction. - Maureen Tromley

  17. 17. The most important thing about teaching mathis that I value students’ understanding andmind, what they come to see in math on theirown and its problems. I think most other thingsin teaching math are rooted in this practice. - LalehnazZahedi
