The Build Math Minds podcast is for my fellow Recovering Traditionalists out there. If you don’t know whether or not you are a Recovering Traditionalist, here’s how I define us. We are math educators who used to teach math the traditional way. Flip lesson by lesson in the textbook, directly teaching step-by-step how to solve math problems. But now, we are working to change that to a style of teaching math that is fun and meets our students where they are at, not just teaching what comes next in the textbook. We want to encourage our students to be thinkers, problem solvers, and lovers of mathematics..we are wanting to build our students math minds and not just create calculators. If that is you, then this podcast is for you.

Episode 4

I was excited to have an episode to listen to on my way home from NCTM. What I loved the most was hearing Ann Elise’s journey. It felt so familiar-“beautiful key word poster in my class.” I love the quick bit of information about math running records and am already thinking of how I can implement them in my school. Short and sweet podcast, yet will bring depth to many!

Mahalo for this podcast!

Yay! I’ve been following Christina for a while now and love all the info and education she provides to help teachers help students in math. There are so many podcasts on literacy and behavior, we can really use more podcasts t like this one on math. Thank you so much Christina! Hawaii is listening!!!

Woo hoo!

I am so excited to be able to soak up some of Christina’s great insights as I get ready for work each morning. I love the online community that she’s built but this makes it even easier to glean great info in a convenient way!
