Math Motivators



From my experience as a classroom math teacher, being a little creative can go a long way. Humor and connecting math to the real world will also motivate students to learn. So I wrote an article describing some of my teaching strategies for motivating students to learn. Ideas include:
  1. Throw Your Paper Airplane!
  2. Students Asking for Homework?
  3. Facilitating the Need to Learn
  4. Seizing That Teachable Moment
  5. Letting Your Students Decide
For more ideas, read this article, and share you own ideas on Facebook and Google+.
