A bad way to start your maths lesson
March 11, 2009 § Leave a comment
You want to start a maths lesson with something interesting and engaging so that students are glad they have arrived in your class.
I really like using the Transum starter of the day.
The processes of questioning, applying strategies, communicating, reasoning and reflecting are present in most of the questions.
The reason I like these processes is that they are the main ingredients of ‘working mathematically’.
My favourite question so far has been this dancing one.
