Applying the skills we are trying to teach in such a manner can not only improve creativity but also provide a more thorough understanding of the content. If a student can understand how the equation is created (by making their own) they can more easily understand the deconstruction (factoring).

“The teacher was trying to teach the class how to draw three-dimensional cubes on paper,” Stigler explains, “and one kid was just totally having trouble with it. His cube looked all cockeyed, so the teacher said to him, ‘Why don’t you go put yours on the board?’ So right there I thought, ‘That’s interesting! He took the one who can’t do it and told him to go and put it on the board.""
