### Lessons Taught and Lessons Learned as a High School Math Teacher

One of my last Algebra 2 units before state testing was arithmetic and geometric sequences and series. Our students are given the formulas for the nth term and the sum of the first n terms, but they are given no explanation for what each variable represents. So, I like to spend an entire class period discussing what each variable represents. Then, we look at word problems and label all of the information with the correct variable. The kids hate it, but it really helps them in the long run…

### Arithmetic, Geometric, or Neither? (Math = Love)

This post will short, simple, and to the point because that's all my wedding planning frazzled mind can handle. 10 days to go. :D My Algebra 2 students recently started our next unit on sequences an

### Simple and Compound interest: a sorting activity

This is very basic, and does several good things: Connect to student understanding of sequences and series (which we had studied the previous weeks), percent, and functions (mine haven't studied exponential growth yet). Get students discussing concepts such as interest rates, loans and repayments All my students were very actively engaged with thinking and arguing about this activity Somewhat self-checking, especially once I told the kiddos that the two columns should be of equal length What…

### Math Important Book

UPDATE: Head on over to my new Math Important Book blog for detailed posts regarding this project. The Math Important Book project is going better than expected, honestly. I am very proud of my students for embracing the project. Most students are using the small journals I picked up at Michaels Craft Store, others are using composition book, while some students have chosen to use a journal of their choice. At mid-September, we are up to about 15 entries! Below are two of the most recent…
