  • Speaker: Dan Meyer, Desmos
  • Title: Beyond Relevance & Real World: Stronger Strategies for Student Engagement
  • Abstract: Highlighting relevance and connections to the real world are often seen as the most effective strategies for engaging students in difficult mathematics, but both strategies are limited and can fail in crucial ways. We'll add strategies to our repertoire, looking at research-based methods for “developing a question” instead.
  • Speaker's Bio: Dan Meyer taught high school math to students who didn't like high school math. He has advocated for better math instruction on CNN, Good Morning America, Everyday With Rachel Ray, and TED.com. He earned his doctorate from Stanford University in math education and is the Chief Academic Officer at Desmos where he explores the future of math textbooks. He speaks internationally and was named one of Tech & Learning's 30 Leaders of the Future. He lives in Mountain View, CA.
