    What Does Good Math Instruction Look Like?

    It involves good teachers,
    an effective math environment,
    and a curriculum that is
    more than a mile wide
    and an inch deep.

    Changing the Way That Math is Taught: Conceptual Versus Procedural Knowledge

    Think of your earliest mathematics educational experience. For me, as well many others, it is probably completing routine, rote math problems
    to the point where you really do not know what you are doing, or how it is related to anything mathematical. You are simply following a
    predetermined set of rules that the teacher has given to you to solve each problem. There is no way of knowing if you are making mistakes,
    or if there is more to the problem than simply computing random digits using seemingly arbitrary information that may or may not apply to
    anything in the real-world.
