Intellectually Engaging Problems: The Heart of a Good Lesson

Home / Presentation / Intellectually Engaging Problems: The Heart of a Good Lesson
Abstract/Description:

A common characteristic of good lessons worldwide is that students are intellectually engaged in solving and reasoning through rich mathematical problems. I will share several problems that I have seen during observations in Japan and have subsequently used in the U.S. I will also discuss some features I have found common among these rich problems.
