The aim of this blog is to discover and explore ideas about learning, teaching, and understanding math. (For me, it usually happens in that order.) What an adventure! My journey to the classroom was circuitous; I taught fifth grade in the public school system, took some time off to homeschool my two sons, who are now in college, and now I hope to return to the classroom. A great math teacher should provide motivation, engage the students, and present explanations for the material. I am hoping that through this course I can enhance my current mathematical practices to make learning more meaningful. I am also looking for ways to boost the student’s mathematical confidence. As the saying goes, “Life is an adventure, teaching even more so.” I think teaching math might be the greatest adventure of them all.
