Let's discuss how to make math is accessible for all students especially secondary math students.

The Beginning…

This summer I have begun reading several blogs and in one of them the writer said – you should blog because you need to write.  This resonated within me.  I am at a point in my career where I am seeing so many connections between what I know about math and I what I don’t know that I feel the need to write them down to help me process them.  I was taught in a traditional math class where I learned to mimic the steps that were shown to me.  I understood why the steps worked but I didn’t see the beauty of the math – the connections between everything we do.  I am a good teacher – at least that is what my students tell me but with this new knowledge I am gaining daily I realize that I could have and should have given so much more to my students.  My goal for this blog is to discuss the changes that should be made in order to reach all students in secondary math classes.

Every math teacher I know works hard and wants success for their students. The lack of success comes from the lack of knowledge not the lack of trying.  There is not a magic pill to bridge the gap in making math accessible and there not just one way  or one strategy – if there was this wouldn’t be an issue.   Hopefully this blog will help others while it helps me.  ~A
