Learning to teach mathematics

Posted on February 21st, 2013 by

EDU 373 (Elementary Mathematics Methods and Materials) features many opportunities to peer teach mini lessons in math following activities that are outlined by Marilyn Burns and AIMS. In the activity below, students are comparing the measurements of their arm span to their height to determine if they are a square, a long or a wide rectangle, a physical proportion that is well documented in mathematics literature. This activity allows students to apply based measurement principles to real life.
