An interesting result, of focusing in this direction, is watching the students who are bored because math is so “easy” becoming engaged in stretching their mathematical thinking. Making room for multiple ways to solve problems also validates the different thinking of less traditional learners. A third result is that everyone seems to be more engaged in what is learning. Many students who come in hating math begin calling math their “favourite subject” because their minds are engaged and their confidence has grown. I am on the journey of learning this style of teaching and have already seen these results.
