Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Students learning math a new way
They weren't like any math classes I had. That's a good thing.
In my math classes, when they called it "arithmetic," there was at least one kid the rest of us hated. When the teacher asked a question, this guy would raise his hand immediately with the answer.
Also, after my first day in algebra, I cried on the way home. I had never heard any of the vocabulary words my teacher was using. It seemed as if I had landed on another planet.
