Subject: Math Interviewing questions
If I were interviewing a prospective teacher for a math position, these are some of the questions I would like to have answered. 1. Can you describe how you use different learning and teaching styles within your classroom to meet the needs of all learners? 2. How do you differentiate for different levels of ability within one classroom? 3. How would you employ technology with your lesson presentation and with student hands-on experiences? 4. With so many students of this age still at the concrete learning developmental stage, how do you incorporate manipulatives and hands-on activities for those students who are still learning at this level? 5. Describe how you take learners from concrete experiences to abstract learning? 6. What are some ways you see to integrate other content areas with your math content? 7. How do you make connections with math to the real world? 8. How would you plan a unit in math? Do you use the textbook as your main source of delivery, or is the standard you plan to teach chosen and then work on how to achieve that objective through various activities?
