A Constructivist Math Example
Yesterday someone reminded me about this great video which I shared with people a long time ago. If you weren’t involved back then, you may not have seen it and wonder what constructivist math is like. M.J. McDermott is a meteorologist in Washington state who was involved in trying to improve math education and made this video a few years back to show how Investigations math style teaching works. Prepare to be dumbfounded. Is it any wonder kids are falling farther and farther behind?
