    Why do, even the most highly qualified math teachers, find it difficult to explain math to students?

      Because they don’t remember how it was when they didn’t know. I, myself, do remember; and have consequently been successful when writing about this subject.

        I think you have a point there as some just don't  remember. thanks for your reply.

    I think it because Math has such a diverse learning curve and the teacher no doubt may not be able to teach to all the varities of learning math. 


    Some student learn visually

    Others learn mechanically

    While many get it verbally

    Others learn by a combination of the three.

    If all the areas aren't worked into the learning techniques they won't get it.

    just thinking....

      This is very true. I can only remember being given a text book and the teacher writing on the board! If you did not get it, she had nothing more to offer you, but a look of disappoinment! lol Thank you for your reply.
