    I feel like I am in the same boat!

    Many teachers like to sit and show the how to do the problem and another one and another one. Then the teacher can not figure out why they students can not do the problem on their own. It is because you have told them how to do the problem not shown them the why of the problem.

    I have a few teachers around me that have told me that my classroom is loud, and was not out of control because they happened to walk in while my students were debating.(maintaining social protocols)

    I need help with trying to get my peers to see this also. That math can be fun and interesting and not just doing problem after problem
