      I was shown this video in a workshop yesterday, and I loved it!

       

      Math Makeover by Dan Meyer - <http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/dan_meyer_math_curriculum_makeover.html>

       

      Although his examples are related to math problem-solving, I think there are connections with other content areas.  I love his analogy of a "Two-and-a-half Men" sitcom-type problem.  What are your thoughts on the video?
