Complementary Angles Podcast

I was recently invited on the Complementary Angles podcast to share about numberless word problems. Over the course of an hour we talked about:

  • The research that supports the use of numberless word problems
  • How numberless word problems empower all learners in working with problem situations
  • Advice for teachers implementing numberless word problems for the first time as well as advice for veteran users
  • How numberless word problems have evolved over time
  • How numberless word problems can be used in remote learning environments

That’s a lot of ground to cover, so they broke up the interview into two episodes. Check them out below.

Part 1:

Part 2:

If you have any advice for teachers using numberless word problems, particularly if you’ve been using them during remote learning, share them in the comments and/or tweet them using the hashtag #numberlesswp. We’re all better together!

Thank you to the ESC Region 11 Math team Faith Schwope, Michelle Green, and David Henson for inviting me to be on the podcast!
