I was recently tagged by Nancy Flanagan to be a part of the ever growing Passion Quilt.
My image to the left shows what I am passionate about: kids DOING math. Not worksheets, not rote memorization, but actually making their own meaning of math.
I want students to leave my room with a feeling that math may be, no, make that math IS hard, but they CAN do it. I try to make math meaningful, fun and active.
I hereby tag the following and ask them to submit their posts to the Passion Quilt:
Here are the rules
