Teaching Hacks: Make Math Fun To Learn With Student-Driven Practical Solutions

Math. The dreaded math—every student’s worst nightmare, and maybe it’s yours as well. You wouldn’t be the only one. Math is a detested subject among both the student body and a lot of the people who have to teach it. That might be why getting all that number crunching across feels like pulling teeth.

But it doesn’t have to be that way (although dentistry does require a keen understanding of math, too). If you’re finding yourself struggling with the teaching process, or if you’re finding that your classroom is increasingly filled with your students’ groans, then it might be time for a different approach.

You may be wondering, where do you even begin? The answer is as easy as 1, 2, 3: with Dear Math, Times 10 Publications’ new book on how to make math more fun to learn, you’ll be able to subtract the “awww”s, add some “yay”s, and multiply the amount of learning taking place!

What are you waiting for? Visit to get started!

The new book was published amid growing awareness of noticeable faults in America’s education system. Classrooms have grown in size, leading to overcrowding and leaving many teachers stretched thin. Math is also typically viewed with disdain, making it one of the most difficult subjects for busy educators to teach. Multiply that with how many teachers don’t feel comfortable with math as a subject either, and you’ve got a very complex equation on your hands!

Dear Math addresses common issues with both teaching and learning math. Available in eBook, paperback, and hard cover formats, the book contains resources and suggestions for you to try in the classroom, written from the perspective of Sarah Strong, an experienced math teacher, and Gigi Butterfield, a student and longtime math aficionado.

Included within the publication are authentic letters from current students with their feelings about math, allowing you insight into the minds of students navigating the subject. Nothing promotes better understanding than really knowing who you’re trying to teach! The book examines common themes in these letters, such as how many students view math as a hierarchical subject that prompts them to compare themselves to one another.

Dear Math also addresses why many people, adults included, tend to view math with negative connotations, and how such viewpoints can be amended in a classroom setting. It provides suggestions on how math can be seen in a more positive light and includes many possible creative activities for you to try with your students.

It’s the perfect read if you’re looking for ways to step outside of the box. Or the rhombus. Or…whatever shape you happen to be covering in geometry right now. You get the picture.

The book is one of the many resources published by Times 10 Publications, since its founding in 2014. Mark Barnes, founder and veteran teacher, started the company to help his fellow educators solve problems. With the release of Dear Math, Times 10 Publications remains committed to its mission of providing practical solutions to teachers and school leaders -- solutions you can read today and use tomorrow.

It doesn’t stop there. If this has piqued your interest, you may want to check out the other books in the series too. Just pop on over to to see Times 10 Publications’ catalog.

One satisfied reader said: “This isn't just for those that teach math, but for those that have avoided math because of our own personal experiences. There are tons of resources, ideas, and practical activities to try in your classroom. What a great read!”

Maybe math isn’t so scary after all. It definitely doesn’t have to be, especially with Dear Math handing you all the teaching hacks you need.
