    Debate 25 - Should You Follow the Textbook?

    Debate 25 - Should You Follow the Textbook?

    Let’s talk about textbooks! Some teachers are handed a textbook and are instructed to follow it. Others may have never had a textbook offered to them. If you are given a textbook, should you be following it? And how much? And if you don’t have one, should you start? Tune in as four thoughtful educators debate the resolution: Teachers should follow the textbook.

    Episode 24 - Bringing Joy to Math Class!

    Episode 24 - Bringing Joy to Math Class!

    We wanted to end the year by bringing together a few of our guests from past debates for a roundtable to reflect on the past debates and also engage in a discussion around the question: How do we bring joy to math class? With politics around education and teaching so often turning negative in the news, we wanted to talk more about joy with our guests. And we hope it will lead to an enlightening discussion with our group today.

    Episode 23 - What is the BEST Standard of Math Practice?

    Episode 23 - What is the BEST Standard of Math Practice?

    If you know the Common Core, then you have probably seen the 8 Standards of Math Practice (or SMPs as we refer to them). Here at the DebateMath podcast, we are HUGE fans of SMP#3 - Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. But we wanted to take some time to highlight some of the other SMPs. So we reached out to educators asking for their favorites, asking: What is the best SMP?

    Episode 22 - Ditch Geometry

    Episode 22 - Ditch Geometry

    Earlier this season we had a lovely debate on whether or not to Ditch Algebra 2. During that debate, our four guests tangentially expressed four very different viewpoints on Geometry. We thought it would be a great idea to get these guests back together to hear more of their thoughts on Geometry. Should we keep it? Is it important? We want to dig deeper into this with our debate. So, we have 2 teams of 2 debating the resolution: Ditch Geometry.

    Episode 21 - How Do You Get Students Talking in Math Class?

    Join us as we take a break from our usual format for a special Back to School episode! Here at the DebateMath podcast, we highly value discourse in math. On the podcast, we want to elevate the voices of teachers and students in our episodes, and we also want that for our classrooms. We want to encourage student discourse in math class. So for this special episode, we asked a handful of educators for their “quick advice” on how to get students talking in math class. We did a handful of five minute interviews with several educators, asking: What is Your Best Advice to Get Students Talking in Math Class?
