This is an introductory lesson to Conditions of a Triangle. The focus of this lesson is solely on side lengths and not on angle measures. It's on Day 2 that I delve into whether or not triangles can be created using angle measures, and noticing when

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a retired math teacher and had the pleasure of working in the classroom for 27 years. I have served as the math chair, vertical team math teacher K-12, started a Math Camp at the middle school level and served as a committee member for benchmark assessments in the county office.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is a mixed bag of tricks! My goal is to always keep students engaged in the lesson. Engaged does not always mean being involved in a cooperative activity or paired work. Engaged can also be accomplished individually. A student can learn far more from being challenged and encouraged to persevere than acting as a pseudo participant in a group. I also love to use manipulatives, when appropriate. That said, the lessons that I will offer on this website will be a mixed bag. You can expect to see MATH LIBS, Scavenger Hunts, plain ole worksheets for rote practice and lessons that help students learn concepts rather than have them "learned" from lecture.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm an old fashioned teacher is the sense that I believe in repeated practice with basic math facts. Over the years, I've learned that this method works well with gifted, average and struggling learners. All students benefit from this approach to teaching math facts. It's been refreshing to see articles written that support this claim, and I look forward to seeing a shift in education where we go back to basics before moving on to more challenging and abstract concepts. Let's give our students a solid foundation in which to build upon.
