Using Jokes and Humor Effectively in the Mathematics Classroom (General)

Presented by Patrick Vennebush

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.
