If you are fortunate enough to have an interactive whiteboard in your classroom’ using it with interactive math software creates many opportunities for group discussion and student participation· Teachers can can begin by posing problems and modeling approaches’ and then ask students to work together to find solutions· Then have them come to the board to demonstrate their solutions in front of the class· These days’ many examples of how to teach math concepts on an interactive whiteboard can be found online in the various whiteboard community sites’ educational sites’ YouTube’ etc·

Now’ as a former teacher I am not saying that one should never use math worksheets; however’ I do believe that many teachers are using a very superficial method of instruction that relies too much on low−level math worksheets and hands−off instructional approaches· Worksheet lessons move from reading the directions aloud’ to doing sample problems as a group’ to completing the worksheet independently (or at home with parents)’ day in and day out·
