Dan Meyer's Bean Counting

Dan Meyer has posted a series of videos (Dan Meyer's bean counting). It was inspired by a word problem that can be read on his blog. This word problem is very similar to problems in most math books I have seen. I love his approach and will use it often.

I now just need to set out to prove that my students test scores will improve when I use this method! Need to start that task soon, our school division's current standardized tests are not set up to measure gains from year to year!

Please visit Dan's blog to see his full list of math videos. You can visit my math wiki for a quick resource and more.
