We are having the student complete more measurements in order to analyze a data set. Today's measures involved moving around the room a lot and so it got congested and tough to complete. Despite that, it was great to see students working together who might normally do so. They were discussing the problem, how to solve it, and what steps to take. It was quite inspirational.
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!
