    Math teacher here :)

    Hi all,

    I am a math teacher and spend a lot of my time marking and planning classes. I spend up to 60 hours per week doing this. I'd be interested to hear what tricks people here use to speed up their work or to save time. Thanks!

    Spend part of class having students mark each other's tests and homework sheets...

    Hi Prove It,

    I understand that having students marking each othersí work (this is sometimes called peer assessment) is a good way to save time but has had complaints about it in the past, both from parents and from the Principal. Some students donít want anyone else to see their work. However; I am still looking for a way to save time without dropping standards and you might be able to help me in the future. keep in touch!

    I have my students correct their own work. They must use a pen or marker to correct their homework. Then I collect it and just skim to make sure they made corrections. It is helpful so that I'm not taking home as much work, but it still consumes class time to review and go over answers.

    You can try technology in education.. !!! try an iPad app, and organize your work, create assignments, ask students submit it on the iPad & then review their completed assignments. It would be very fast! You can even track their progress over the year.!
    My daughter's math teacher does that.. app called math pentagon. Its very nice. I highly recommend it. mathpentagon.com
