Problem solving in math class

Posted by Ed on November 27, 2011

Dan Meyer, a highschool teacher, gave a very interesting TED talk about problem solving in math class. He shows that current text books don’t teach problem solving at all but instead focus on plugging values into formulas.

Dan also suggests how to make the class much more interesting by incorporating real-life examples.

Dan Meyer also has a blog.
