In this episode, join Tim Hudson, PhD to discuss the difference between mind numbing math (dull thoughts) vs. thought- provoking math (genuine problems that invite thinking). He’ll discuss techniques and strategies to inspire student thinking and foster transformational learning. And, you’ll discover how to leverage digital environments to connect students with manipulatives that simply can’t be created with paper or plastic. These are manipulatives that are fundamentally different and serve as a critical component of building conceptual understanding that prepare students for the future.
