Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Educator Dan Meyer explores the way math is taught - although he's not sure it even is. In this TEDxNYED talk, Meyer asserts that today's math curriculum leads students to expect and become habituated to paint-by-numbers class work, robbing them of a skill more important than solving problems - formulating them. Meyer demonstrates classroom-tested exercises that prompt students to stop, think, and take a proactive approach to math.
