How I Humanize the Math Classroom

Tue, Feb 19, 2019 · 9:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

The math classroom can easily be turned into a class where students wish they were robots: just memorize formulas, theorems, and definitions, and “plug and chug.” How do we bring back the human aspect of math? How do we show that we value our students’ voices? In this session, I will share many pedagogical strategies that you can start using in your classroom next week that humanize your math classroom, making your students feel that they are more than their ID number.

I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts How I Humanize the Math Classroom
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
