it is quite nice to see and hear students working together to solve a math problem. In this case students actually helped each other to understand a topic related to triangle side measurements. They were using rulers to create triangles with specific side lengths. Right before this photo was taken the student to the right had been showing the student to the left how to use the ruler properly. Unfortunately, I didn't capture the event very well, but you get the idea. It was really great to see!
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!
