- Teaching Style
- I like students to be active in my classroom. I believe that students learn math best by doing it. I will spend 20 to 30 minutes demonstrating new skills. I try to lay out very clearly how to solve problems step by step progressing from easier to more complicated problem types. This will be followed by students working problems while I circulate around the room helping out as needed. I also very often have my students working on more complex projects and/or application type problems that require them to not just know the math but be able to apply the math and learn the underlying conceptual base for the mathematics.
