KET: Active Learning in Adult Numeracy
Steve Hinds led a professional development training for Kentucky Adult Education math teachers where he demonstrated and discussed a series of lessons on functions. These video segments taken from the training are focused on broad math teaching practices that are appropriate for math teachers at all levels.
To better understand the problems and issues discussed in the videos, it is strongly recommended that practitioners read the background essays that accompany the videos.
Steve lives in Chicago and directs the Active Learning in Adult Numeracy project, which is focused on curriculum development, teacher training, and other reforms that promote active, student-centered math teaching and learning for adults.
Steve Hinds demonstrates various approaches:
- Communicating in Math Classrooms
- Deepening Conceptual Understanding
- Resisting the Temptation to Be Too Helpful
- Scaffolding Adult Numeracy Lessons
- Building Deeper Understanding of Decimal Numbers
Each short video also contains background essays and discussion questions.
