Abstract

In the fall of 2011, I was a student teacher at North High School in Worcester, MA. I taught one honors-level Precalculus course and two honors- level Algebra II courses. My primary goal for this project was to successfully teach mathematics in a manner that accounted for the diverse range of students. When planning how to conduct classes and preparing materials, I took into account the varying learning styles, learning disabilities, and behavioral issues present in the classroom. Teaching was quite humbling- I now hold my teachers in an even higher regard for overcoming the daily struggles in a classroom. I am grateful to have had the pleasure of helping to make a difference in the academic lives of the students I taught, and overall the experience was immensely enriching.
