Every so often I get the idea that my students have actually learned something by listening to me facilitate class. We recently had a summative assessment (meaning graded test) in my Geometry class and this was one of the papers turned in. It has a clearly explained and diagrammed answer to the question that is completely correct. Most students missed some aspect of this question but a few persistent souls got it right. I'm happy to see this kind of thing in action!
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
