New way to help teach math
Teaching math to the beat
I think this is a great idea! Plus, its great to have a good story come out about things the United States is doing. We seem to take a beating a lot in the international community. Last edited by Just a Spouse; December 2nd, 2005 at 09:49 AM.

Math is pretty easy to teach, I've found, but you need to find ways to relate it to examples that the student(s) can relate to.
I wish teaching paid a little bit more and I'd be doing that, instead of designing instrument clusters..

I will bring my kids to your house. I spent 3 hours last week trying to figure out 6th grade math. I wanted to hang myself.:miff: I can tell you I NEVER did any math like this when I was in school.

Covered in mud...

I did algebra in 7th, Algebra 2 + Trig at 8th grade, Advanced trig at 9th, Geometry at 10th, Precalc in 11th, Calc in 12th, graduated with AP placement credits for College level Calc 1 and 2.
In college, I had Calc 3(multivariable calculus), Linear Algebra, Diferential Equations, and Discrete math. I never use any of it I was actually held back in math, as well. Was supposed to take calculus at OU for my junior and senior years of high school, but we got a new principal when I got to 10th grade who changed the plan, so I took the geometry class as a blowoff....

The funny part is that in 4th and 5th grades I was perhaps the worst math student in our grades. None of it made any since until jnior high, where my 7th grade teascher was a godsend in Algebra. Once you have a strong base in Algebra and Geometry, everything seems to fall in place. Can't help you with the 6th grade stuff though. Like I said, I basically failed math until 7th grade
