Paging Multiplication…

February 27, 2021


Working from home this professional development day, and a brief window between zoommeetings to say I did a page about promoting the conceptual understanding of multiplication.

Just because I’m distractible doesn’t mean I … I’m helping w/ Elementary Ed math this semester. I wonder if it’s workable for the “I want to teach elementary but I’m not good at math” cohort.
