Searching for Better Mathematics Education
This week we ask how we can build curiosity in the classroom. How can we have students come up with their own questions and have investment in their own learning? How do we create the need for Math so that they see the point when we learn a particular skill.
To help us answer these questions we are joined by pioneering educator Dan Meyer who is known by many as a leader in progressive thinking in the world of Math Ed.
Now in a doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, Dan is known for asking potent questions about what works and doesn’t work in the mathematics classroom. He creates engaging lesson resources that give students the why before the how.
