Good opinion-editorial piece. I think it does deemphasize conceptual understanding problem-solving and may over-emphasize practice, but overall this is a good article. I like the analogy of doing math in playing a musical instrument.
This is a good paper describing the use and characteristics of rich problems. http://math.sfsu.edu/hsu/papers/HsuKyshResek-RichProblems.pdf (The teaching method here is Teaching With Tasks.) Has 3 examples of rich problems First is rich and fairly basic and doable. Second is excellent. #differenceofsquares … Continue reading

realistic: I take this from Flickr from CU-Boulder and Freudenthal Institute US hosted the Fifth Realistic Mathematics Education conference, or RME5, in September of 2015. https://www.flickr.com/photos/downclimb/sets/72157656469778994/ Realistic: imaginable, realizable, not just “real-world” Meaningful: significant, relevant, important, consequential, telling, material, valid, … Continue reading
Here a two great websites that provide lots of great pattern problems. Spotting Numbers Visual Patterns These patterns can be used with elementary students (if you just ask number questions) through advanced algebra (if you include questions about functions). Mathematics … Continue reading
