Teaching Math is a project of the Annenberg Media Foundation in partnership with WGBH Educational Foundation in Boston.
This course grows out of a large-scale video project on methodology and content in school mathematics. The video clips that are featured in each of the sessions are taken from that project, Teaching Math: A Video Library. The purpose of these video programs is to provide mathematics educators with tools to implement the national standards for mathematics education. The library includes a series of classroom videos and accompanying print guides. For more information, or to order a hard copy of the library, visit the Annenberg Media Web site at www.learner.org.
