Dan Meyer’s Maths Makeover on TED

Another great education talk from TED. I’m a big fan of inquiry-style methodologies which we have been focusing on a lot within ‘Human Society and Its Environments’, but I have been anticipating maths and science teachers rolling their eyes at exploratory discussion-based approaches. In this absolutely wonderful ten minute presentation on better maths teaching, Dan Meyer looks at how to foster engaged, persistent, creative problem solving. Some of his pointers? Use multimedia, and ‘ask the shortest question you possibly can’.
