My mom, who is a teacher, forwarded me this great presentation by Dan Meyer titled “Math Class Needs a Makeover”.
This video struck home as I have a freshman in High School who I’d love to see his critical thinking and thirst for knowledge continue to be a life long passion. But it all starts with a strong foundation. The way Mr. Meyer is teaching is the way some of my best mechanical engineering professors and teaching assistants taught, especially in labs. But now he’s got the advantage of so many cool technologies that make it that much easier.
I look forward to seeing more of Mr. Meyer’s work.
