View Resource Teaching Math: A Video Library

Would Lewis Carroll have approved of using "Alice in Wonderland" to teach algebra? We may never know, but that exact possibility turns up in episode two of the valuable "Teaching Math" series created by staffers at WGBH Boston. This series shows teachers demonstrating "the fine art of guiding students through reasoning and problem solving." Along the way, students chime in with comments about...
