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

What do you do with a class that exhibits poor behavior with anything other than quick paced, teacher led instruction? I want to dig into inquiry but they misbehave if I don’t catch them back quickly

Anyone have a solid 8th grade Math curriculum? I’m teaching is a mixture of Algebra 1, and Pre-Algebra. But I’m not sure how much to delve in polynomials and radicals- as they will get that in Alg 1.

What's you "dream class" that you would love to teach but for whatever reason you can't? For me: probability & stats, formal logic, or cryptography.

I teach 4th grade math. I would love some input on how YOU make math come alive and fun for kids. Got any good ideas? I will tell you that I do have a class set of chrome books. I’m all ears:)

I'm teaching a 6th grade replacement math group and trying to find ways to help students who struggle with subtraction. What strategies have worked for you? Fingers keep getting counted wrong!

I have an Ohio 4-9 math & science license but will move to Colorado. Does anyone have experience with Ohio to Colorado reciprocity? Do they accept OAE scores or will I have to take the tests again?

How would you answer this question: Why do I need to learn how to do math when I have calculators and technology that will do the math for me?

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!
