Teaching mathematics brings with it a whole host of concerns. Besides student problems, such as not having 'number sense,' not having arithmetic skill, and not being able to apply basic mathematics to solve rudimentary problems, there are teaching concerns related to delivery of lessons.
Teachers must be able to present information in a variety of ways. The goal is to spark interest, involve multiple senses, and foster creativity. Consequently, the days of passing out simplistic worksheets based on repetition as the sole means of imparting and reinforcing knowledge are long gone.
