Read ÒWhat do Math Teachers Need to Be?Ó* by Herb
Clemens, a mathematics professor at The Ohio
State University. Where does your own
practice of teaching mathematics stand in relationship to what Clemens says mathematics teachers need to be: * unafraid, **reverent,
humble, opportunistic, versatile, and in control of their **math. *If
Clemens came to your classroom and watched you teach math, how would he answer his question: Can this teacher teach it [math] with conviction, and with some feeling for its
essence? Explain.
