Math And How To Teach It In The French Classroom

Take Ron Berger's middle-school math project to study levels radon in their own homes. Studying radon is boring. But Berger's class project has got to be one of the most compelling projects in math class history. What if his students discovered dangerous levels of radon in the homes of one geographic area and published the results as they had intended? What would happen to real estate values in that area? What he found is that students were highly engaged in mapping, taking averages, looking at standard deviations- students that heretofore didn't care one bit about radon or the other concepts.

Math tutors can be located by asking for recommendations from family and friends. You can also search for a math tutor online. There are a large number of sites that provide online tutoring. Some of them also provide free online math tutors. You can contact an online tutor, and can ask for a demo session. If you like his/her teaching, you can opt for further sessions.

Many teachers believe that grading is a form of feedback. It isn't. Grading, when done well, can be a form of assessment of learning, but the distinction should be clear. Grades are not an effective tool as assessment for learning. Grades are the end of the road, when you assess what has been learned, but they should not be intended to inform a student where to go next.

Test yourself quickly to see if you can do math. Here is a simple test. If you cannot work out math formulas, or they do not make sense, figure out the way you learn to solve problems. Do you get the same answer as those who use a mathematical formula? Then congratulate yourself. You know math in a way that reflects your thinking, not another pat method. Now you can know that when you figure out a chess strategy using your math skills, as long as they are based on true math, you can be confident you will have an effective winning strategy. Keep working your chess strategy until it becomes effective every time you use it.

The next important math concept to master is to know how numbers compare to each other. A useful device for learning this math concept is a number line.

As a teacher or administrator, spend time during the fall months by planning for and scheduling a single day each week during the months of February and March (right before testing) to have volunteers come in to teach math in small groups. But what's nice is that if developed correctly, these volunteers don't need to have any special training in math.

To practice mathematics, math workbooks are the good source. You learn a concept in a workbook, then in the same booklet there are more problems on the same concept for practice. Another good method to practice mathematical concepts is using math worksheets and you can print math worksheets free of charge from the web.
