Hello, everyone, and welcome to my page! Your teacher may have sent you here, or you may be a teacher or parent of a teen student in need of help right now. We’re navigating quite a situation here, but it will all be ok. It’s really tough to teach this age level without content-specific knowledge. Math Giraffe offers ideas, insights, resources, and teaching materials to guide you in teaching math creatively.

We all understand these are hard and scary times, and students and teachers everywhere are adapting to remote learning. So, we want to provide tips and resources for you. (Note: this is more geared towards middle and high school. So if you have a teen or pre-teen stick around!)
