Math Lovers Unite!
Great article in the Times about two local brothers going to a math competition. I hadn't thought to post it (except as a feel-good piece) but for the last sentence. One of the brothers says he likes math competition questions better than in-class questions because they are more creative. Dorothy, our resident math expert, might be able to answer why math can't be taught more creatively if this is what gets kids going. Maybe I can track down some of the questions and see what he means.
