A Message From Your Seminar Leader
With lesson plans, grading papers, calling parents, and many other classroom responsibilities, it is often difficult for math teachers to find time to research the latest tools we have available to support mathematics instruction. Additionally, for most math teachers, it is a struggle to get many students truly engaged in learning. It's been my experience that most students are not typically excited about fractions, equations or functions!
