This past fall semester I had the wonderful privilege of taking Andy’s [Dr. Andrew Engelward] class, Math for Teaching Arithmetic. I really enjoyed the class because I felt like I was instantly able to apply what I learned with my middle school students.
Due to his class assignments, I was I able to bring back interesting puzzles and fun games my students were able to enjoy. Because of his class, I was able to make my class fun for the students. I was able to offer a whole different mathematical perspective to my class, and students were beginning to realize how fun math can truly be. I myself liked that I was able to reinforce what I learned because I was able to apply my learning with the students, and the students liked to feel like they were participating in my learning from Harvard.
