101 Questions


Classroom culture flawed beliefs about math
Classroom Culture:Flawed Beliefs About Math

  • The learning sequence in math is linear.

  • The rate of learning math is linear.

  • Since math is sequential, if topic C depends on A and B, we cannot possibly address C until we address A and B first.


Transferring mathematical authority
Transferring Mathematical Authority

Always Never

“We” “I”

“AN answer” “THE answer”

Students won’t be paid to solve problems with answers in the back of a book.

We must prepare our students for jobs that do not yet exist.

One can never bench 300 lbs. by only lifting 100 lbs. Problems prove their worth by hitting back!

THANK YOU years?

“Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals

Above the crowd: a little bit more.

They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.”

- A. Louis Vickery
