I have taught 7,th, 8th and 9th math for students with IEP’s. As a special educator I don’t have a license in math, but have taken math courses. However none of the courses have dived into proportions. I have always taught the math based on the curriculum and just taught in “silo’s.” I have wanted for myself to have a deeper understanding of proportions. It has been one of my least favorite concepts to teach. My mind is expanding by listening to the Making Math Moments Podcas and the ideas presented there have increased my interest in this course. I am looking forward to learning how I can teach this concept better and help my students have a deeper understanding of a topic that is a main player in middle school math.
