Math teachers in my school/district (including me) will only have 42 minutes/day to teach math. It has always been 90. Big change! I'm in favor of the idea (not that it matters since its happening anyway ) because I think kids will respond well to a quick dose of math BUT.... how will I get it all done? I'd love to hear how you run your math class if you teach in a short period. What do you do that is very time efficient? I'd also love to know how you begin your class. I am going to eliminate the traditional warm up/bell ringer this year and replace it with a one minute or two minute something or other. Not sure what. I'd love some ideas there. I'm moving from 7th to 8th grade math this year, but I am thinking many of these tips will be non-grade and non-subject specific. Please share! Thanks.
