I wish when I was in high school I was more encouraged to learn math, science and computer science. And more girls are needed in this field.

For some reason computer programing as a career seemed to take a back seat to other math/science/computer careers, esp.during the late 90s. Now it is time to get back to that, a million programers needed in the next 10 years is a great opportunity for many kids, I hope they do more to target more girls, not just boys.

Great insights from some faces my students can really relate to. The video really captivated my student's attention and got them excited about learning to code and the possibilities it can lead them into. Thanks for sharing and I will pass on again!

"Teaching one-step equations to sixth grade has always been an interesting task, as these problems can usually be solved with mental math. You will meet a little bit of resistance as you clearly show how to use inverse operations to isolate the variable and then show a proper check to verify the solution. Read that last sentence? Yes, a bunch of jargon to middle school students who see the task as useless since they already know the answer. And telling them that they need to “know this for Pre-Algebra” is not a cure all.

 

This time around, instead of notes and practice, they listened to a few short videos created by our math peer tutors and then set about working on creating a 10+ page book on one-step equations. The result:"
