SWTJC STUDENTS TEACH LESSONS ON TRIANGLES
Southwest Texas Junior College Ascender students in Instructor Alejandro’s Contemporary Mathematics course participated in teaching demonstrations on Monday, May 2nd. The entire lesson on triangles was taught by the students.
Students selected a topic a week before and prepared a visual and oral demonstration of selected objectives. Each student created a Power Point Presentation, provided an oral explanation, and engaged the class in a practice activity. This teaching demonstration allowed students to experience the classroom from another perspective. In the follow up reflection, students analyzed their own performance and emphasized their strengths and areas that require improvements.
“As we are wrapping up the semester, I believe students enjoyed my class and will leave with a great sense of accomplishment; it is my hope that they will carry on the feeling that math classes can be fun and exciting,” stated Instructor Alejandro.
