571: Increasing Coherence in High School Math
The high school math curriculum, even if integrated, can be badly fragmented. Unifying concepts can bring focus and coherence. I’ll give two examples: transformations, and a natural introduction to complex numbers as an instance of system extension.

Avery Pickford

Math Teacher, Lick-Wilmerding High School
The way I teach math != the way I was taught math. This is my Nth year teaching, but I haven't come close to "figuring it all out." I try to get my students to do as much of the thinking as possible, and I am particularly interested in the teaching and learning of mathematical habits... Read More →
