Visit this Colombian classroom where the students have been working on complex real world problems. Here, the students are modelling to the class in an immersive way how quadratic equations can be applied to problems of economics and maximum yields in agriculture.
This is an urban, private school. Watch out for how the teacher:
- Challenges students to role-play a problem of productivity
- Has students demonstrate how to apply their mathematical understanding
- Listens to their mathematical thinking in detail
How do you use real world connections in your own classroom?
