|"Sharing thinking about math from students": a collection of work by students that teachers have not taught them explicitly how to do. Wees elaborates that "the idea or technique a student uses does not itself have to be completely original, just new to the student." Posts, which date back to December, 2012 -- many describing open ended problems, projects, or investigations -- have included "At most vs at least," "Design project: Create a multiplication tower," "Visual factoring," "Grant Wiggins on budding middle school mathematicians," "Fold and cut," "Decomposing fractions," "An insurance agent walks into a bar ...," "Exploring fractions in different bases," "Boarding passengers onto planes," "Mathematical sequences as musical scores," and "What is my area?"|
