Making Math Fun
Guest Blog for McGraw-Hill Education: The Art of Teaching (April 9, 2018)
That was super fun… and unexpected. I am so glad to be asked to guest blog for McGraw-Hill Education for the Art of Teaching section. I wrote about a collaborative and competitive summative review game I used to play with my Math 12 students (in preparation for the provincial exams) and other math courses as we approached the end of the school year. It was a great way to learn more about what students know and understand but also learn about what I have done well and what I need to do to bridge any math-gaps. I wanted to provide some photos (from the CYH Archives) to depict how fun and how awesome this learning experience was for students… and for me. What a great way to build a learning community and celebrate mathematics. This is definitely one of my career highlights as a secondary mathematics teacher. Learning math is FUN.
