529.1- Why Students Hate Word Problems

Friday, April 27, 2012: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
Terrace Ballroom 4 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Dan Meyer

As we start to deliver curricula digitally, we need to reckon seriously with the reasons and effective methods for connecting math to the world outside the math classroom.
