Best Teaching Practices, by GVSU's Math Student Teachers

Over the years, our math student teachers have shared their best ideas and most memorable experiences from the mathematics classroom. We prompt them by asking what they have seen or done that will stick with them or have a lasting impact on their practice. I thought I would share it here in the hope that others may find something useful.

Feel free to submit your own ideas or experiences in the Comments.
