If you are like me, you are always looking for problems that cause our learners to think beyond just the process of doing mathematics. I call these problems high ceiling problems because they engage the learner in thinking. Recently, I have been drawn to Dr. Jo Boaler's website: https://bit.ly/2PERubA, where she has been posting all levels of mathematics each week.
I like this video: https://vimeo.com/224719652
Here is one of the problems below, how do you see this pattern growing? What would the 5th case look like? What would the 100th case look like? Let's chat about this and see what creative ideas we can come up with. AND if you have a place to post your pictures on the web for us to share your thinking - then please post your visual so that the community can try to "see" how you are thinking.
Here is a link to this lesson:https://bit.ly/2P6rzdv
