    I’m out of school for the summer, so I won’t be using these techniques until August. However, I did get a lot out of this video! I think the technique of withholding information can help students really think critically about what information they need in order to solve a problem. I actually think some of the techniques shown in the video could help level the playing field between my special education math class and the gen ed math class next door – we could provide the same bare minimum information (picture, video, etc.) and see where the students take it, adding information and subbing in level-appropriate numbers as necessary. I think it’s really fascinating to watch how a relatively boring problem can suddenly become interesting when there’s mystery involved.
