A Routine for Secondary Classrooms
“Imagine a plastic cup lying on the floor. Give the cup a nudge so that it begins to roll. What does the path it takes look like?”
So begins the journey that Christof Weber takes you on in Mathematical Imagining. Along the way, he makes the case that the ability to imagine, manipulate, and explain mathematical images and situations is fundamental to all mathematics and particularly important to higher level study. Most importantly, drawing on years of experiments in his own classroom, Weber shows that mathematical imagining is a skill that can be taught efficiently and effectively.
