Higher Math for All – Podcast Episode 87 | Classnotes Podcast 87
Classnotes Podcast (April 18, 2011) Mathematics literacy is essential for any child to be prepared for the future. Many understand that we cannot reserve higher math for a select few. Paula Martin Johnson, M.A., an IDRA education associate, says that in order to launch today’s student into the expanding digital generation, math curriculum must adopt a new format and method of delivery for instruction. In this podcast episode, she describes how to connect math to students’ reality and the importance of keeping them engaged in their learning. She expands on her article in the April 2011 issue of the IDRA Newsletter where she describes a preferred approach that pursues an enriching “inch wide, mile deep” philosophy, giving students with the needed time to be introduced to, process and apply new concepts. Paula interviewed by Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
