“I have never actually been thanked after a lesson, but today I was. Many times.” A teacher tries an approach based on teaching to her students’ intuition, and a topic that had frustrated them no longer seems such a hurdle. Through very practical strategies that teachers can immediately borrow for their classes, Teaching to Intuition seeks to address the widespread estrangement from mathematics displayed by many.
"Edric's book is absolutely outstanding. His insight into kids' mental processes and his techniques for building bridges between real-world experience and math processing are something pretty close to a paradign shift. AND he knows how to write clearly, simply, and conversationally."
Howard and Marion Brady, educators, authors, What's Worth Learning.
"The impact of making math appeal to students' intuition is astonishing and dramatic! If number sense were presented in this fashion in the earlier grades we would see a dramatic change in the population of students that never seem to pass math. Your book on Teaching to Intuition should be mandatory reading for anyone pursuing a teaching credential in math."
Mark Arnez, 8th Grade Math Teacher, Folsom-Cordova USD, CA
"All teachers through grade school at least should study your book. It would make a huge difference in how students could learn and enjoy math. Have you managed to get Teaching to Intuition used in college math education classes?"
