Ready for a Little Adventure?

The wonder, the beauty, the adventure of math.  That’s how Jerry Burkhart views the math classroom.  His work lies in the creation of tasks that inspire math students.  A message from the author to ALL of us:  We (Yes, YOU!) underestimate our math abilities.  Math is for everyone – we are not born good (or bad) at math.  He provides sage guidance on the “speeding up of math” as opposed to depth.  So. if your math mission has been hijacked by pacing guides and worksheets, you’ve got to listen to this math treasure.
