Testimonials

HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

This stuff makes lessons exciting so they are not just about numbers or just about manipulation, they’re in context. And it doesn’t take a lot of context to get kids excited about doing the other stuff. This makes them want to do it! HIGH SCHOOL MATH TEACHER

A. H. Math Resource Teacher

The response to Teacher Talk was very enthusiastic. Our teachers checked out all of the copies within twenty-four hours after the viewing!

The Teacher Talk materials also gave us some great ideas for teaching in teams of four: language arts, social studies, science and math teachers. After seeing the lesson our science teachers said, that’s the way to pull the language arts into our study plans.

DEAN OF MATHMATICS

You have done a grand job in making the vital connections between school and work, of exploration of real-world uses of math and science, of illustrating relationships between math and daily life, and of making the future real!
DEAN AND PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK

We found lots of ideas in the tapes that we use in our classrooms. Every lesson is like an adventure! And cost-wise, these exercises were extremely effective and fit very well into our district standards. The teachers thought that anybody could do these exercises. This is very important.
In Teacher Talk, there are perfect examples of activities that are both fun and relevant. These activities lend themselves to interdisciplinary use, merging literature, science and mathematics.
