Dispelling Myths about Teaching Math
One of our perennially most popular stories is about how younger teachers can get over their fear of intimidation when it comes to teaching math.
In the article, we addressed some of the myths surrounding the teaching of math, and instruct educators on how to get around them. Some of these popular myths include:
  • You don’t need to study for teaching math
  • There is only one right way to get the right answer
  • Logic is needed for math and creativity is not
  • And more!

Remember, “In today’s technologically advancing world, learning math is more important than ever. Technology requires that we solve more difficult and complex problems all the time. Thinking clearly about math is the first step in teaching children to also think clearly about math.”
