We’re all Dan Meyer fans. Just in case you missed it, here is an EducationWeek article that provides more insight into his perspectives and current projects. I did not know that he was homeschooled through eighth grade. You’ll also find a short video (four minutes long) in which Meyers shares a few examples of how to ‘hook’ students with a real-world question or problem and then step aside and “… let the math serve the conversation”. I blogged about Meyer’s Ted Talk in December. You can find that post here.
