This is a place where math teachers can share thoughts and ideas.

Anybody have a different word to use for ‘quiz?’ The kids can do the HW with me/on their own- but as soon as you pass out a quiz- everyone freezes. 🙄 I get test anxiety, seriously.

The day after New Years is my first day teaching and my DC is encouraging me to do a lot of team-building but since I’m starting mid-year, my kids are already behind content-wise so I’m conflicted.

Hey everyone! I am trying to get my math supplement in CA. I need 1 or 2 more classes but don’t know what online colleges the CTA will accept. Anyone have any colleges they used to get a supplement?

Motivational Monday- Name a lesson you love to teach or is your favorite to teach; or your best ‘trick’ in the book. (Be sure to include the activity, manipulatives, etc) Be sure and name the class!

I’m preparing to teach division with decimals. Our math program doesn’t have manipulatives for the concrete representation. Suggestions how to have students understand dividing with/without decimals?

Does anyone else have to wait until they have all assignments turned in for the day to start grading? I have Geom classes in the a.m. and p.m. and my OCD doesn’t let me grade as they are turned in.

About 1/3 of one of my algebra classes is retaking the subject bc they failed last year under a different teacher. They’re disruptive and don’t seem to care about anything. How do I deal with this?

How do you handle a class that can’t work independently without talking constantly?They’re not really a problem when I’m lecturing, but when I give homework afterwards they just talk and talk!

How do you keep your material (notes/worksheets/quizzes/tests) organized? I have a hanging folder system now, but currently irritated with it. Like binders, hate 3-hole punches- love ‘clean’ paper 🥳
