Types:

This presentation about integers teaches students why rules for integers exist. Namely, why we "add the opposite" or "add the numbers and keep the sign." Everything goes back to practice on the number line until students can develop rules

Types:

In this presentation students are shown why fractions are multiplied numerator x numerator over denominator x denominator. They are also shown how to change mixed numbers to fractions so they can multiplied in the same manner. Students are then

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching math for 11 years now. For 2 of those years I worked to provide professional development to K-8 teachers in math strategies that could be used across grade levels. Since my return to the classroom I've had great success with the PowerPoint presentations I've developed. In the 2010-2011 school year I had approximately 14% more students score proficient and advanced on our state test compared to the previous year. I love math and I love teaching it in a way that makes sense to students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Direct instruction followed by guided and independent practice, goal oriented, and focused on academic vocabulary
