I was taught the procedural way, or as I like to call “lazy way,” and now students are being taught the conceptual way. I never heard of the conceptual way of teaching until taking this course, but I have to say I like this way a lot better than the procedural way. In the beginning I was scared about teaching elementary math because I thought I would never understand math the way students do now.
But I didn’t seem blessed with her lack of principles. On many occasions April would find out that I really went to Jessica’s house and to the mall without her. These occasions taught me that it is more painful to be caught in a lie than to tell the truth in the first place.
