Make yourself more interested in the sense that your students are making rather than the sense they aren’t making. Celebrate and build on that sense.
Hi. I’m Dan Meyer. I taught high school math to students who didn’t like high school math. I have advocated for better math instruction here and on CNN, Good Morning America, Everyday With Rachel Ray, and TED.com. I earned my doctorate from Stanford University in math education and I’m currently the Chief Academic Officer at Desmos where I explore the future of math, technology, and learning. I have worked with teachers internationally and in all fifty United States. I was named one of Tech & Learning’s 30 Leaders of the Future. I live in Oakland, CA.
I remember being introduced to Meyer’s work a few years ago. He takes problem based learning in Mathematics to a new level.
