What it is: Math Pickle is one of my very favorite math sites. It goes WAY beyond your traditional math drill and skill games or math problem worksheets, and has students looking into challenging problems, and having fun doing it. Math Pickle features mathematics videos for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. The videos feature real students engaging in inspiring math problems and puzzles. The videos often speak to unsolved math problems throughout history that students work to solve. In the unsolved problem, students must use developmental level appropriate math to work out the problem. Math Pickle is the brain child of Dr. Gordon Hamilton who wants to abolish elementary mathematics as a subject and push the idea that problem solving is at the very heart of mathematics.
Wow, this is an amazing site. Take a look at at the site the video by Dr. Gordan Hamilton, a math professor, Let’s Abolish Elementary Mathematics. Sounds like a strong statement, but watch the video!!
