TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Kerry Cue is a humorist, mathematician, journalist and author. She studied Science/Engineering at Melbourne University, taught math for 10 diabolical years then turned her hand to writing for newspapers, TV and radio. She’s written 20 humorous books and now she is the popular maths blogger, Mathspig, with over 900,000 hits. https://mathspig.wordpress.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

After studying math at university for 5 years, then teaching for 10 years, I made a big discovery. I never wanted to know the answer to any problem. I simply wanted to get the answer right and move on. I taught in some tough high schools. On my first day at one school a student threw a bike off a roof. Now I understand their rage. Only a small % of students love math for the challenge. It's like Latin, a dead language, to the rest. So I started my math blog MATHSPIG to show teachers and principals that math could be REAL, RELEVANT and FUN. I concentrate on the TOUGH YEARS: Middle School. Math teachers don't have time to be creative. So I'm producing the WORKSHEETS that I would have wanted for my challenging classes. So here are the worksheets that motivate students, even difficult students, to DO THE MATH.
