The Development of a Mathematics Learning Community

Timothy Touzel.


Teachers at all levels have difficulty bringing students into their domain of learning, particularly the science and mathematics domains. Content in these subjects turn uncommitted students off, particularly as the vocabulary and concepts become more esoteric. The problem begins with elementary teachers whose understanding of the content is limited and in many ways prohibitive of developing the right attitude in children.
