    #1, many congrats on your new job! Keep blogging.

    #2, thanks for the recap of the student assignment. Over the last two weeks I’ve been trying to do the same with teachers. They find it hard to map out the path of the mathematics through the three acts which leads me to believe that creating the tasks is beyond most students’ abilities. Capturing their curiosity in a single video or photo, though … that might be possible.

      Thanks for your honest critique. I’d have to agree with your assessment of the difficulty of task creation. But I do have to say that there were some very positive results and high engagement, even if their final products were simple. I’ll keep you posted as I try a variation next year.
