Recently my friend Damon Whitten has been posting some very cool ideas for encouraging kids to develop mathematical thinking at home. I think the same ideas and processes apply to adults and these can work in classroom situations as well.
Here’s the update: There are several whiteboard problems that Damon has posted as a follow up to his video. If you liked the video you might want to check these out:
- The radiation problem and a related class friendly version.
- Ten bowling pins problem.
