As educators, we provide knowledge by sharing stories. But the process of teaching yields some of the greatest stories of all. We'd like to invite you to share your story about how public media has had a positive impact in the classroom.

In high school I struggled mathematically and that affected, basically, what I do today. It’s very difficult at times when my students are in a math class and they’re working out of a book. But anytime you can make a connection to something they’re interested in or something they deal with on a daily basis, it’s beneficial to their learning because it’ll give them a little bit more interest in the subject area.

Get The Math and the “Math in Music” videos and web interactives really hit home – kids fully engaged in working out what they “want” to learn. And as a teacher it’s hard sometimes to get that.

Why they felt this kind of math was more fun:
“We’re using computers, and computers are more our style.”
“I like it because I’d rather put beats together and learn that, than look through a textbook.”
“I think it’s fun because it’s interactive and it relates to the real world and how we’re going to use it.”
