TedEdChat – A Math Class Makeover – Dan Meyer

Dan Myer discusses the need for a math class makeover, hosted by Catherine Casazza (@mscasazzaIA). He shows math classroom practical exercises which prompt students learning to think about maths in a practical and applied sense. Education in schools is un-directed towards the individual student learning needs and skill levels. Where the math curriculum is not teaching students actual mathematical thinking skills, where students develop the process of formulating ideas and solutions to everyday problems. Instead of being subjected to rote memorization for tests and repeated math seat classwork. A Math Class Makeover, Source: (Meyer, 2013).
