The Facts About Heather J. Robinson.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this page is to concentrate on pedagogy and best teaching practices.  In my quest to be a better mathematics educator, I have designed this page to enhance my understanding of the mathematical concepts involved in the assignments as well as how to incorporate these investigations into my teaching strategies.  I believe that the best educators are well versed in the mathematics behind the skills that they are charged to teach students, but I also believe that teachers are responsible for giving students a complete set of knowledge that does not just involves “skill and drill” but rather fuses skill attainment with understanding.  My goal is to look at each investigation in its mechanical light as well as its pedagogical light in order to make my page accessible for both students and fellow educators. 

I have included some links that I like below and The Assignments follow.
