Overview

Teaching Math reveals and explains a high school curriculum that will work for virtually all students, both slow and fast learners, including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Analytical Geometry, Calculus and more.

Teaching Math contends that, and explains why, the current standard high school mathematics curriculum is not working for many students. In a nutshell, because it is too compartmentalized, is not interactive and self paced enough, and inadequately utilizes the 21st Century power tools of math.

Teaching Math explains how the Effective Math Education Triad provides the basis for any successful high school math curriculum.

Teaching Math explains how a basic foundational presentation of Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry can be achieved in about forty hours of student time, less than a semester. A Syllabus to achieve this is given. At this point the student will know enough practical math to enter many technical trades and have a good foundation to proceed in their math education if they choose to pursue a STEM career.

Four major Power Tools of Math are recommended with explanations of how, why, and when to use them. This is critical for many reasons in 21st century math.

Four important mathematics Resources are recommended for both teachers and students. Some are for the standard curriculum and some for the new recommended curriculum. A major “gaping hole” in the standard high school math curriculum, the inadequate treatment of the Complex Number System, is discussed and explained.

Teaching Math explains how modern technologies make it possible to significantly reduce the total costs of high school math education, while dramatically improving its quality. Quality up, Costs down.

Six Interludes give examples of topics that should be of interest to any high school math teacher, from Archimedes Tombstone, the Generalized Pythagorean Theorem, to topics from complex numbers.

Anyone, parent or teacher, who is interested in the math education of a high school student, should gain new insights and perspectives that will help them in their decision making regarding the student’s math education from Teaching Math.
