This is what I realized: There are three different ways of solving a math problem.
- There is the way you might do it on paper
- The way you might solve it in your head
- The way you might find an answer using a calculator
I plan on using this blog to talk about different math-solving approaches and discuss some of the algorithms that are used in various math classrooms and math programs. Many of the algorithms are the same, but have different names; and some may be approaches that you've created and been using yourself!
Please feel free to post any comments or questions as I update this throughout the school year. I also hope to be having an audio podcast and possibly some video segments.
