Product Description

Presenter: Patrick Vennebush, NCTM

Grade Band: General Interest

Description: When used effectively, humor helps to create a positive environment for learning. In this seminar, we’ll explore how jokes can be used to help students retain information, illuminate concepts, and set the stage for problem solving. Come find out how many math teachers it takes to change a light bulb, and learn how to use this joke (and others) effectively with your students.

Note: You will receive a recording of this E-Seminar as well as a Site Facilitator Guide.

"Beginning Algebra: Teaching Key Concepts" (focus 11/13 MT)
November 2013 Focus Issue: Beginning Algebra: Teaching Key Concepts How can all students learn the key concepts of beginning algebra? Through the study of algebra, students learn to think abstractly, apply various representations, communicate mathematically, and develop the habits of mind that are needed to use mathematics and become lifelong learners. Whether taught within a first-year algebra or an integrated course, algebraic concepts form a core of mathematical knowledge that students need for future success. The Editorial Panel of Mathematics Teacher solicits manuscripts that examine ways to teach the key mathematical concepts students must learn in a beginning algebra course. $13.95
