Goldilocks, the Three Bears, and Teaching Math
I’ve made it a goal for the school year to learn more about K-5 math this year. I believe knowing more about the K-5 curriculum, instructional strategies and activities will help me be a better secondary math teacher along with helping students make stronger connections to prior knowledge.
Marilyn Burns continues to create simple blog posts that make the teacher connections relevant for any grade level. Her recent blog post, Goldilocks, the Three Bears, and Teaching Math, illustrates how students can have multiple strategies for the same question.
How can we all find ways to provide our students with math problems that engage students in different ways to solve it? Please share. Hit me up on Twitter and I’ll retweet.
