Author:Geoff Krall
Description: "Teaching math is difficult. Teaching math in an interesting, engaging, and effective manner is even more difficult. This blog is dedicated to brainstorming interesting and dynamic math problems and projects," with emphasis on Project/Problem Based Learning (PBL) models of instruction. Posts, which date back to January, 2011, have included "The Problem with Pythagoras," "The 'Don't Teach Them Content on Day 1' Myth," "Seven (Sneaky) Activities to Get Your Students Talking Mathematically," "On intersecting periodic functions," "Accuracy vs. Understanding," and "Can we make an even 'edgier' brownie pan? What about the 'perfect' brownie pan?" and "If the sun is an 8 foot diameter balloon, what is Pluto?" Now a math coach, Krall taught high school math before earning his Master's degree in Atmospheric Science.
