More Information on this Folder

Mathematics is one of those very challenging areas of study which builds one lesson upon another in such a way that a student who doesn't understand one lesson is highly unlikely to understand the next lesson. For this reason, clear, precise, and straightforward explanations of mathematical concepts is critical. The teacher who cannot explain not just what the student is doing but also why is setting the students up for future failure. In this directory you will find a variety of resources which will help you prepare to teach your lessons in an interesting, resourceful, and - above all else - clear and accurate manner. If you have a teaching tip in any area of mathematics which you would like to share, please log into the site using your free membership, and follow the links to submit a new article.
