What kind of mathematics happens in teaching and learning?
Logic, Functions, and Probability are just a few of the topics that this eBook covers. It is written to include many practical examples for both the non-mathematically minded and the mathematician alike. Its methods are meant to be used across the curriculum.
The Data Driven Teacher features constructive teaching methods written and applied by Mathematical Teaching and Learning Consultant, Michael Wilt. In it he explores the question above by considering what types of mathematical models we can use to better our teaching and learning practices at the classroom level and what fundamental mathematical knowledge it takes to be an effective and reflective teacher-practitioner.
The preview chapter defines discipline as function. It familiarizes the reader with the basics of data collection and provides hints towards the effective development of rubrics for the data collection process.
Further pages defines curriculum sets, explores logic, and presents an applicable function of learning for the collection of data in the form of process assessment in the context of content. In addition, we define a numerical definition of mastery based upon the assessment function. We also hint towards the idea of group mastery and measuring effectiveness of instructional strategies. Definitions and scenarios are given for application context.
Like the data driven classroom, this manuscript is in the constant process of construction and deconstruction. We present information in the form of application of numerical methods and mathematical analysis of said application.
