How do you take a closed, uninspiring problem and transform it into an engaging, rich task? Open the middle!
Join the Global Math Department as Michael Fenton leads us through an introduction to the “open middle” genre. We’ll wrestle with sample problems, discuss effective classroom use, tackle a series of “Open Middle Makeover” challenges, and wrap things up with a tour of Robert Kaplinsky’s open middle gold mine (openmiddle.com).
Plus, keep your eyes on #slowmathchat all week for daily open middle challenges.
