Hi team! My name is Derek Hyland. I’m a middle school teacher in Lloydminster, AB/SK Canada (Lloydminster is on the border of AB and SK). I teach grade 8, all subjects to a class of 27 students. We’re in a special program, designed to get kids learning more hands-on and land-based than a traditional classroom.
Many of the concepts discussed in the Making Math Moments that Matter podcast are very new to math teachers in my division. I’m hoping to solidify my own understanding of the best pedagogy for maths education, and after test-driving things in my own room, bring that to my colleagues that I work with.
