Deconstruct the experience. What happened at the beginning, middle, and end of the application problem? What were the teacher moves? How is it different than the same kind of problem in a textbook?
What about this particular YouTube clip lends itself to mathematical investigation? What are two ways we can create a question here?
Please give me some feedback on today’s workshop so I can improve it for our next session. Let me know what you liked, what you disagreed with, and what you’d like to hear more about.
For tomorrow, you may complete any of the following assignments:
- Identify the hook in an existing math problem.
- Bring in some mathematically-interesting multimedia.
Don’t spend more than fifteen minutes on the assignment. Do prepare yourself for a brief show-and-tell session at your table tomorrow morning. If it’s possible to submit your homework via e-mail, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
