Intelligence and education


I read your excerpt rather quickly, and found it very interesting. It also
resonates somewhat with the tortured algebra thread that I am guilty of
starting. As artificial as the "clock-hand crossing" problem is, it at
least has some tangible relationship to the real world of a student that
most math problems don't. Hopefully, the more we can encourage teachers to
include such "real world" problems in their teaching, the less "squirrels
and nuts" learning we will foster in schools.
