I have been fortunate enough to be able to contribute
to my community, my country, and the world in
several ways, but possibly the most important thing
I’ve done is teach young people. And I still teach, but
only as a tutor, one student at a time. This website is
my effort to help more youngsters; I hope to create
documents and streaming video tutorials to support
their math and language arts education.
It’s also possible that The Notebook Projector
Method (NPM) could be of benefit to novice math
educators of elementary, middle, and high school
students. Channel Alpha videos show how I teach
math concepts using techniques to visually organize
processes; however, for NPM to be useful to
teachers as a tool for skill development and formative
assessment, it also requires an integrated and fair
grading method that motivates students.
Since I believe that classroom use of NPM structure
and routines can be effective, my future plans include
creating articles and videos that may help some
teachers to feel more confident in how they handle
the teaching of mathematics.
Until then, please feel free to check out everything
else, including my slightly tongue-in-cheek video
about retiring, and how I teach.
