“Kill the Butterfly” Presentation

Posted: February 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

Today our district had a professional day. It was set up as a conference format. I led a session on how to teach students concepts of mathematics for understanding and not just teaching tricks to pass a test.

I presented three times, but only recorded the first one.

The conversation turned out to be really good toward the end.

The last slide I shared is below. These are great resources that I encourage all teachers to read.

Do you have any tricks that we should look at trying to stop? You can make suggestions at NixtheTricks.com. Let’s all work together to help students understand mathematics!
