Houghton Academy math teacher Keith Wiley, who is featured in Sunday's story, describes himself as "a big kid" but also says he's a big believer in data analysis. If most students get a test question wrong, he says, "that's on me" and rethinks how to teach the concept.
"Once you've taught something, you have to assess and say, 'Do they really have it?'"
He added, "A lot of people say, 'I don't know math. I don't like math. I can't do math.' Well, you haven't had me yet."
Here's Wiley describing how the Middle School Math League competition works. An energetic teacher, even for this video he found it hard to sit still.
