Episode #29: Concept-Based Mathematics: An interview With Jennifer Chang Wathall
In this episode, we’ll dive into a great conversation about shifting mathematics teaching from what many of us remember from our K-12 learning journey to a more progressive, inquiry approach to teaching mathematics conceptually. In particular, we’ll discuss with Jennifer Chang-Wathall how to be brave in your classroom to make necessary changes to promote student understanding, unpacking what teaching conceptually really means, and how we can ensure that students still learn the necessary facts and skills alongside conceptual understanding.
- How to be brave in your classroom to make changes that are needed for your students understanding.
- What does teaching conceptually really mean?
- Why we need to have facts and skill AND conceptual understanding. It’s not either or.
- How we can build confidence in our own math learning.
- Why knowing where students will create misconceptions will make you a better teacher.
