    10 Ways To Make Your Math Class More Fun

    1) Mini Lessons:
    Divide the total number of minutes you are in class by 5; this is how many lessons you should aim for. Thus, a 60 minute class should have approximately 12 lessons. with you in the middle. Show them how ½ a circle is different from 1/3, ¼, or 1/5 by standing in the middle and extending two tape measures

    2) Get Them Out Of Their Seat:Sitting for an hour straight is hard 

    3) Art:
    Using art is a great way to illustrate word-problems. 

    4) Legos: 
    Using just a few Lego pieces will allow you to teach almost any concept. 

    5) Posters:
    Got some boring definitions you need your students to learn? Have them create a poster. 

    6) Group Work:
    Group work can be a great learning tool. 

    7) Less Problems & More Mastery:

    Two awesomely thought-out problems are worth more than an entire worksheet of drill. 

    8) Homework Should Be Short and Sweet:

    I hate the idea of homework. I hate the idea of taking time away from family and friends to do busy work.

    9) Use Math Stories, Math Trivia or Riddles
