Dan Meyer has recently been asking teachers to consider (a) the problems with textbook application problems and (b) finding or creating compelling content for the classroom.
I’ve been thinking about this since he’s started posting, and I’m trying to think of where I can find — but not create — the interesting digital media that would satisfy his criteria.
In the meanwhile, I decided to look on youtube for some videos that would naturally lead to a particular discussion/topic for some high school math class. Some are better than others. Without further ado…
Cool! Some nice nonstandard stuff here.
