General reflection
on teaching math, this class, anything you are thinking about related
to teaching math.
Pairs come to class
prepared to talk about one lesson in the book you have that illustrates
the 5 Process Standards you read about in Brahier, that is closer to
Mr. Triangle Area than to Mr. Angle. Each pair only has about 6
minutes, so you do not teach the lesson, but give us some idea of what
it is and why you chose it.
