This TED talk came through on one of my lists. It talks about a way to teach math that gets thoughts going and conversations happening. It relates back to the “How do you think you can figure it out?” post from a couple weeks ago.
This teacher blogs, as well, and I’d like to find some time to read more of what he has to say. The little bit I read just reminded me of the interest that can be felt for any subject when the person you are talking with is passionate about it. I was fascinated to think about teaching math as I read through his blog posts.
