I would say that my teaching style is one that reinforces critical thinking. I do not wish for students to just memorize how to do particular problems. Instead, I want them to gain a better way of thinking in order to attack said problems. I want students to question all their answers, learning to check their answers with different methods to gain consistent results instead of taking their immediate answer as accurate. If an answer is incorrect, rather than immediately showing them the correct way, I want them to understand why the answer is wrong in order to prevent future errors.
