Patient Problem Solvers

This TED talk about alternatives to “plug-and-chug” math & physics is very neat. Dan Meyer shows how easy it is to transform boring and shallow textbook problems into engaging real world dilemmas. His ideas are practical, creative, and obviously effective. When I’ve attempted problems like this it’s not always clean, but my students get super excited and I feel like it has been very effective. The 10 minute clip is well worth it for any math or science teacher!
