The personal learning network for educators
How math is being taught has to change. Middle school math teachers are too reliant on the textbook. This has two problems. The first is it does not effectively engage the students. The second is that it does not create higher level problem solvers.
I will not go into depth on the previous two points. This video by Dan Meyer speaks beautifully to my stance.
