About Adam

I am currently in my 9th year of teaching. I spent two years working with middle school students and the remaining 7 years working in the high school. I have a BA in Mathematics, a Master's in Teaching, and am currently working on my Master's in Mathematics Learning and Teaching at Drexel University. I want my students to understand the mathematics content they are working on. This understanding comes as a result of interacting with the material and being allowed to participate in their learning. Asking students to memorize meaningless formulas causes students to have a dislike for math and I do not blame them. There are multiple ways to approach math problems and providing students with a variety of problem solving tools will make them more confident about their ability to approach unfamiliar problems.

I believe every child has the ability to be successful in math if the instruction is manipulated to fit their needs.
