I came across this Vimeo video on Good Finder and was inspired by it because my math experience was completely the opposite in school. Math was not fun or exciting as a youngster. In fact, I struggled throughout my entire schooling (elementary, junior high, high school and college). Not because I wasn’t interested, didn’t study, or seek help from teachers and tutors. In retrospect, I believe it was the old-school, stale teaching style.
What this video demonstrates is that you can teach a cerebral subject like multiplication and division in a way that’s engaging, interactive, fun, and motivational.
Mr. Joe Semsar (and other teachers like you), thank you for thinking outside of the box!
