The Personal Road to Reinventing Mathematics Education

The Personal Road to Reinventing Mathematics Education | Math, technology and learning | Scoop.it
When traditional ways of teaching math fail to excite kids, Gary Stager encourages educators to think beyond what's been done in the past.
Margarita Parra's insight:

"

Mr. O’Connor knew there was something terribly wrong with math education in his school.I looked around the room and realized that most of my classmates had been in Unified Math with me in 7th grade. These lifeless souls identified as mathematically gifted six years ago were now in the “Math for Dummies Who Still Intend to Go to College” class. If this occurred to me, I wondered why none of the smart adults in the school or district had observed this destructive pattern?"

A head teacher in London shares his thoughts on what it’s like to 'disrupt' your school with SOLE.
Margarita Parra's insight:
"An incredible experience : Also, finally, some evidence that reading comprehension is the limiting factor for SOLEs. Even then, year 3 took on an A level GCSE question! What brave children!" Ah!!!! Pero si uno les pide a los alumnos que lean y entiendan (en la universidad e incluso algunos profes) surge todo tipo de queja, limitante de tiempo, de imposibilidad de traducir, de desconocimiento de términos, etc. Y los padres de familia, cuando se trata de menores, alegan: "su clase es de matemáticas, no de lectura".
