Brainstorming in the Math Classroom

I will admit , at first, I didn't think incorporating "Brainstorming" in my math classroom would benefit my students...boy was I wrong. The first day I incorporated "Brainstorming" in my classroom I was amazed at how effective it was. Not only does it activate prior knowledge, but it opens up discussion and allows me to clear up any misconceptions my students might have had on the concept. This particular day we were working on subtracting integers. I opened the lesson with "What do you already…See More

I don't know about you, but I am fed up with the following response from my students when I ask them why they didn't complete their homework: "I didn't have time." I try to teach my students the importance of prioritization. I understand that many of my students participate in extracurricular activities after…See More

Welcome to Math Concentration

Hello, My name is Wanda Collins. I am a teacher and devoted mother of three beautiful children: Camia(7), Ciara(5), and Chris, Jr.(2). I love life, being spontaneous, reading, learning new things, and staying busy. My favorite pastime is browsing the internet while eating a snack. I am currently pursuing an M.B.A at Nova Southeastern University.

I have been in education for the past 9 years and I am passionate about teaching. Although teaching is extremely rewarding, I sometimes find myself frustrated with the lack of resources at my disposal as well as my limitations in the classroom(55 minutes of class instruction time given). I created Math Concentration so teachers could share best practices and provide free/low cost resources like budget effective activities, incentives, math centers, classroom management strategies etc.

In addition, Math Concentration was created to provide free tutoring and homework help to middle school students struggling with math. We offer homework help forums, groups, and an online classroom tutoring equipped with a virtual whiteboard. During our online class session, students can ask questions via chat or call in with our meeting number. You can schedule a tutoring session Mon-Fri from 7pm-9pm


I look forward to collaborating with you!

How to write your best essay for your homework

How to write your best essay for your homework

 

Whatever the essay you have been asked to write, the key to making it as effective as it can be is to write it as a well structured and well-supported argument. You will find that an ‘argument’ essay is easier to plan, more fulfilling to write and for your teacher (or the examiner). A pleasure to mark (and that’s no bad thing!!).

 

It’s important to get one thing out of the way at…

Math Limerick

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?

Answer:

A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.

---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)

Presentation Suggestions:

The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.

Resources:
