Christopher D. ...Abstraction is a hard concept to understand, and I believe the concept all together is ignored in many schools. We're taught this is algebra, and this is how you use it, but we're never taught why we use it, or what makes it so useful. "Why" is a very important question. I believe understanding the "whys" of math is the key to both using it effectively, and retaining the information.

Debra T. ...I believe in using word problems to teach math concepts. I think many times students forget what problem they are solving and get bogged down with memorizing the mathematical steps. When this happens they are not able to use their analytical skills to solve the problem and they don't know whether the answer they came up with actually makes sense.
