Kate Kowak is to math blogging what Barack Obama was to stump speeches:
My hope is that what we are witnessing here [with What Can You Do With This?] is a paradigm shift. At the intersection of problem-based lessons, digital projectors, blogging, and frustration with poor-quality textbooks, is blossoming a new way of bringing mathematical understanding to our kids. We don’t need to buy anything new, or anyone’s permission…just the structure, and the willingness to be observant and curious, and the humbleness to imagine that there might be a better way. I think this is just the beginning. I think this is going to spread like a fire.
