ung woman who is deliberating about what research to conduct for her doctoral dissertation.  The year is 1982. Classroom technology consists of a few laser discs, film projectors, slide projectors, and a wonderful new device called the overhead projector.  Tests are still run off of the mimeograph machine with the purple ink that smells so good. High-tech individuals have boom boxes, cassette players, big boxy televisions and Kodak cameras.  Home films are taken with heavy, unwieldy video cameras still using super 8 mm film with the newest ones accommodating the newest thing—VHS tapes.  To have data analyzed, keycards are coded, punched and run through a mainframe computer. A few individual desktop computers exist, but they are large, bulky, and just a step above an electric typewriter.

Even so, there are visionaries at Mississippi ETV in Jackson MS who think math instruction for elementary students can be enhanced through video. They believe it so strongly that money is spent to produce a series of math lessons called ‘Figure Out,’ featuring a talking, teaching computer named Mac and real life kids. But they need someone to conduct a research project to test its effectiveness with students before the decision can be made to produce the full series to be featured as a weekly ETV series.   So, a contest of sorts is launched.  A Mississippi ETV Researcher’s Award gives the best proposal a $1000 grant to be used for the project. § Read the rest of this entry…

Handling Math Phobia

We all have heard kids say, “I’m not really good at math” or “Math isn’t my thing”, especially after receiving a bad test score. Could these comments be subtle signs that they are afraid of math? If so, we need to pull the child aside and ask some questions that might help shed some light on what they are thinking. Are they afraid of failure, or of not understanding, or are they afraid that they are not smart enough?

Then you might offer, “Do you know what helps me when I’m afraid of failing,” or “Do you know what I do if I don’t understand something?” Sharing your own experiences can really help.

For instance, I like to explain that I try to turn scary situations into opportunities. If I have a mountain to climb and start with the premise that the climb will be too hard and I’m not capable of doing it, then I’ve already defeated myself before starting. Working out a math problem is much like working your way up the steep face of a mountain. Sometimes your direction reaches an impasse and you need to backtrack. It’s the same with math problems. The journey can either be fun and tortuous, depending on how you think about it. This reasoning has worked with my daughters, and I’m sure it can work with others too. § Read the rest of this entry…

Teaching Math: It’s All in the Balance

Balancing Act by Taylor Dawn Fortune

"Balancing Act" by Taylor Dawn Fortune

The debate continues between two camps—the traditional vs. the reform—as to how children should be taught math. On one side are those who believe skills should be taught based on algorithms, formulas and step-by-step procedures. On the other side are those who think the more inquiry-based approach that emphasizes developing conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills is the key to success. My question is: Why does it have to be one or the other? Why can’t it be a combination of both?

Let me illustrate. My 2nd grade grandson walked to my house to show me how well he is doing in math class. He announced, “I have an ‘A,’ Gigi!”

“Wow!” I said, “Show me what you are learning!” § Read the rest of this entry…
