Ahhh.... I can smell the spring in the air and quadratic functions in Algebra class. I just LOVE this time of year!! I'm not sure why, but quadratic functions have always been my personal favorite, especially that good old quadratic formula. :)
Not every 8th grader in my classroom feels the same way, unfortunately. This is the first year I've had the luxury of some extra time without rushing through quadratic functions, so I'm feeling pretty good about myself and my teaching…Continue
I have noticed that sometimes my student's struggle with Algebra concepts is in fact a maturity issue. The variable and slope concepts are particularly hard for them to digest. I am noticing that these concepts are being introduced earlier in the curriculum. I hope it will make a difference eventually. But sometimes it is a question of "a tincture of time"-- the students are just not mature enough to handle the abstract concepts. What do you do to deal with this?
