About the lesson
My methods of teaching math are the following: while explaining an operation, I use a visual or graphic illustration to help get the point across. I provide students with connections to the real world or previously taught lessons to help them make sense of concepts. I use assessments to determine student understanding and to check in on students learning. I focus on strategies because math is all about problemsolving using strategies. Sometimes, there is only one way to solve a problem, but many times, there are multiple avenues to the answer. I model several strategies for understanding and exploring a concept. I encourage students to apply highlevel skills when given problems and focus on the thought process involved in the solution. Math usually has only one right answer, but being able to reason through the steps to find the answer is the most important part of solving math problems.
