Blah. Blah, Blah

I was thinking about how I've changed and not changed. I have been boring myself for the last few years with my way of teaching math. Science was better but just because it was new, I'm sure I'd have bored myself with that to if I could've got stuck. I'm still blah blahing in my Geometry Class, the kids don't listen, they are points obsessed and they don't really want to learn. My Algebra kids are great. What happened to get these advanced kids so tiresome? This SBG thing has me invigorated and I love the way the kids are responding but Geometry is still boring, I don't like how my text does not have spaced practice. I'm done blab, blabbing now.


  1. Have you tried the Art of Problem Solving for Geometry text?

    It's geared for gifted students taking geometry in 7th grade, but what I like about it is that there are a ton of challenging problems that students can get excited over and that can be solvable for the non-gifted by breaking the students into groups.
