This week’s teaching strategy:

Matrices: A matrix organizes information and problems in a table view, with the y-axis (first left-hand column) providing the constant and the x-axis (top row) providing the variables in the information/problem to be organized. A matrix can be used to demonstrate relationships between concepts, definitions, and skills or to lay out the steps and reasoning in problem-solving. Matrices reinforce relationships and processes for the learner and ask for both linear and non-linear approaches to thinking.
