Students who struggle with math in middle school stand at a crossroads, and watch as career options slowly erode. Do you know any of those students? Have you ever personally felt the frustration of math limbo?

Today’s podcast is an opportunity for a second chance. In fact, we hear second chance stories on our podcast quite frequently. If you know a teenager or a parent with a teen who needs a second math chance, subscribe to the TTI podcast in iTunes and share it with others.

Can fooling around, goofing off, and playing help your innovating power? How can you use Monopoly(R) to teach kids better math skills? Is there really a killer strategy for playing Monopoly?

He’s a no-nonsense teacher in some respects because he works with middle schoolers, but on the other hand, he uses the game of Monopoly(R) to teach kids to master their math facts and hone their negotiation skills. Without further adieu, Tim Vandenberg.
