The Cool Calculator Caper | Math Maven's Mysteries Student Activity Detectives, the trap is set, but now I need your help. I fooled these clever criminals into coming after the Cool Calculator, but I need to be prepared for each one's arrival. You'll need an important formula to figure out when the suspects will arrive in Point Logos: Rate X Time = Distance. For example, if you ride your bike at 10 miles an hour (R) for 2 hours (T), how far did you ride (D)? Here's another example: If you drive 80 miles (D) at the speed of 40 miles an hour (R), how long will it take (T)? Note: The units of measurement for distance and time (such as miles and hours) must be used in the rate. Okay, super sleuths, now it's your turn to use this formula!

20 Ways To Be A Better English Language Teacher (Part 1) English language teaching can be a challenging and difficult process, especially if you are seeking for new ideas and thoughts on improving your day-to-day teaching. Much of the challenge is learning to develop yourself, especially once you have found your place in this career and feel settled. You must continuously strive to improve your own teaching day in and day out. Here are some ideas to consider when you want to improve and develop your own teaching or if you want to be a better teacher overall. 1.

Flashcards in the Classroom: Ten Lesson Ideas The other day, I was preparing a lesson with an intermediate group of young learners and getting my flashcards printed and laminated. However, when chatting to some other teachers in the staffroom, with myself behind the laminating machine, there was a brief comment that flashcards are more suited for beginner or elementary learners and more appropriate for young learners. Flashcards are really good but more suited for young learners or really low levels of students. Unfortunately, I really have to disagree with this sentiment as I have used flashcards with many different levels as well as ages of learners. With this post, I really would like to push the boundaries of what is considered suitable for learners and offer teachers practical ideas on how they are able to incorporate flashcards into lessons with more than just young learners or beginner/elementary classes. 1.
