Teaching Tidbits is a blog hosted by the Mathematical Association of America. We recognize that few instructors have time to keep up with every advance in educational research, read books on pedagogical practices, and re-envision their classes each year. Teaching Tidbits will provide quality, evidence-based ideas with high impact and low time commitment that can be used by a wide audience. Our goal is to provide ideas that you could read on your smartphone or tablet on the way to class, then try the same day!

The primary audience for the blog is post-secondary math instructors, however many of the tips would be useful to the K-12 community. The posts will appear every other Tuesday during the semester and will be written by the editors or guest authors. All blog entries will be reviewed and edited prior to publication. Please email suggestions for posts and leads on interesting ideas to teachingtidbits@maa.org.
