KET: Math Instructional Strategies
This collection was produced by KET for adult educators and focuses on Number Operations and Geometry. Videotaped segments taken in actual classroom settings provide examples of strategies for teaching math in the adult education classroom.
In these segments, learners are active participants in the lessons, often collaborating in small groups to find measurements for area, perimeter, missing dimensions, and compound shapes. You will also find techniques for moving learners from concrete to abstract methods of solution. While some lessons are presented in traditional lecture-based style, most feature an inquiry-based approach.
This collection provides videos of adult education professors leading students in either lecture-based or inquiry-based approaches to math, number operations, and geometry.
