Step in and out of an impromptu fifth-grade math lesson with an experienced teacher, and renew your appreciation for students' algebraic thinking.
Steven M. Schulman, firstname.lastname@example.org, is a long-time New York City teacher, district math coordinator, and curriculum consultant. His participation in mathematics education through periods of significant reform has given him considerable insight into what has been achieved by learning theorists, mathematicians, and math educators over several decades. On the basis of his observations and experiences, he insists on using an optimistic brush to paint the future of what we do. Schulman currently teaches math methods to teacher candidates for elementary and middle school at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
