Like Ericka in the last post, I too am a middle school teacher and I also encounter a range of misunderstandings regarding math. I feel I have a duty to head off as many of them as I can before they get into high school where things really begin to count for graduation credit, etc. I never really thought about how many ways there are to count – exciting!! That just blows my mind because there again something I think of as very dry and easy, and I get a small glimpse into how complicated it can be. I need as much of that as possible to be able to better understand my students and become a dramatically better teacher.
