A bridge is a method that brings us from where we used to be to where we want to be. As Math educator, we need to find ways to bridge some of those Gaps in Math to use a different type of Assessment in the classroom.
Provide supplementary instruction in the classroom (MyMathLab, WebAssign, Online Learning)
Proper communication on both parts is necessary
Patiently and Passionately teach
Teaching to the test is not always the key
Train students to be successful and to think successfully
Be creative in class
Allow supplementary activities to engage students
Allow students to be constructive and creative
Create a safe place to success or fail
Get feedback on your teaching method; Evaluation
Teachers have a picture in their mind, but students may not
Ask students questions to see if they need help
Talk to the Elephant! To get students attention; ice-breaker
