For students to be able to develop meaning-making about something, they need to be able to make connections first. Something would only make sense to them if they are able to relate it to their background knowledge and experiences. As classrooms become more diverse now, teachers truly need to meet and reach out to the needs of their diverse students first in order to make the subject matter more accessible and meaningful to the students.
"Do people have a sense beyond that? Or do people are just scribbling around? And just getting answers without really knowing what they are."
"Use Math in their daily lives to solve something they really care about." (One of my main goals in my class! I really want them to see Math in a different perspective.)
This is such an inspiring video! I also like how he broke down into pieces the definitions or standpoints of making Math meaningful for students. I like what he said about "making these ideas come alive". As a future teacher, I keep trying to learn more how to incorporate authentic context to Math. However, I am not sure if I'm being able to reach out or transfer to my students that Math outside school is more than just doing a Math homeowork at home. I want them to realize, at a young age, that they'll use Math to solve problems they may encounter in real life. I also love how the professor in the video taught about how the images will help students understand the Math instead of the numbers! I am excited and more determined to be creative to fulfill the goal of making Math more meaningful for my students!
