Edutopia - 7 Real-World Math Strategies

Here are some great tips from Edutopia ... Math used to be all rote memorization and pencil-to-paper equations disconnected from the real world, but more and more teachers are realizing the importance of making practical, relevant connections in math. We asked our audience of educators: How do you use the real world to teach math? We’ve collected some of the most interesting answers, ways teachers are connecting math to the everyday lives of their students.

Teachers of NCCAT - Ginger Flynn

Where do you get your best ideas?  What inspires you?

My best ideas come from colleagues, especially fellow NCCAT participants. All great ideas come from others... really! When I visit NCCAT, everyone discusses their best. Their best lessons, techniques, etc. are the answers to my questions. Being in that environment, you are given the time to reflect and decide how that can be used in your room.

The Physically Active Academic Classroom program at NCCAT

How many of us have endured the drudgery of the “sit ‘n’ git” workshop and sworn silently that we would never inflict the same fate on our students? This promise represents not only good humor, but also good pedagogy. A wealth of research supports the hypothesis that physical activity can boost comprehension, retention, and self-regulation in students of all achievement levels.
