Common Core has radically transformed the math class, at all levels, from basic computations to calculus. The textbook no longer drives classroom instruction. All levels of math instruction must have a direct tie-in to the real world. Further, with thoroughly all inclusive classroom activities, all students will have multiple opportunities through multiple venues to master the material. Standardized tests will no longer drive instruction--no more "one inch deep and one mile-wide" approaches to instruction. How refreshing:)
My board PINTEREST FOR MATH offers a variety of new ways to view math as teachers. Pinterest is an account that can be used for academic issues as well as cooking. Take a look at creative ways to teach all levels of mathematics. Delight your students in the process. Develop a love of mathematics in all your students!
