590- Open-Ended Problems with Purpose

Friday, April 17, 2015: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
210 B (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Marian Small


Even if we give interesting math problems to students, simply solving a problem should not be the focus of a lesson. The focus should be on the ideas that the problem unveils. We will explore a number of interesting open-ended problems by focusing on the underlying ideas they unveil to students.
