Your talk inspired me to speak on something similar at a math conference in NJ in February. I’m glad Dan Meyer mentioned you in his blog.

Cool. Let me know if I can be of assistance!

That would be great. Here’s a link to my slide presentation. The intended audience is middle school teachers.

Next time I do the talk I’ll definitely include some of your ideas.

Great presentation – thanks for posting! Your method looks really interesting to try out. I was wondering if you could post .ppt versions of slides #20 and #21 as those didn’t seem to render correctly as .pdfs and they contain your example story/problems. Thanks again and keep up the great work.

There’s a pdf version below the scribid file. But I think the issue is that I just piled up images upon images in my presentation–so the final slide is pretty useless as a stand-alone. I’ll make a list or new slide-set or something to unlayer them.

Chris–check out the link below the scribd file–it should work now.

I really enjoyed reading through your presentation. My experience is in physics classrooms, where lots of the problems are essentially word problems with some real-world context. However, I think they fall short of being stories, and it might be that our attempts to connect to the real-world in this way doesn’t really add much to the student’s experience.

So I’d like to understand this idea of teaching with stories better. Can you point me to a specific example of a story in a math class? In particular, I’d like to understand how to work the ‘dramatic arc’ in.

Also, how is the response from the students? The background in your presentation provided good motivation, but do they learn math better with the stories? Is there any problem with transfer of knowledge to new contexts?
