Math with Ms. Danahy
"There are two versions of math in the lives of many Americans: the strange and boring subject that they encountered in classrooms and an interesting set of ideas that is the math of the world, and is curiously different and surprisingly engaging. Our task is to introduce this second version to today's students, get them excited about math, and prepare them for the future." - Jo Boaler
My goal is to bring the "math of the world" to our classroom, so all students build their capacity to use inquiry, learn independently, and solve problems.
This year, I am using the Modern Classrooms Project instructional model so that every student is appropriately challenged and supported with blended instruction, self-paced structures, and mastery-based grading.
