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.

I absolutely loved this episode

Thank you for so eloquently explaining the importance of providing students with opportunities to develop their number sense. I learned so much!

Short and sweet

These are the perfect length for me! Today’s episode about flipping the 100 chart gave me just enough info to help me see the reasoning behind the concept and a link to learn more. Love it!

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!
