NCTM – Steven Strogatz

Lots of great stuff in Steven Strogatz’s opening presentation. I’m sure others will go into more detail (and hopefully the full thing will be on youtube?)

While the big ideas were great, I’m most interested in ideas I can bring into my classroom next week, or at least next year. This video is one I can’t wait to use to frame unit conversions. They’re surprisingly tough for my 8th graders, and I’m excited to give a little bit more meaning to that conversation.
