As always Dan provokes our interest in something very cool and mathematical. Take a minute to check out his video on The Magic Octogon which he claims will blow your mind!
In just a few short moments you can’t help but be drawn into the process of predicting, questioning, hypothesising and thinking. Why? Dan shares a perplexing moment by engaging us in the magic and quite simply he ‘hooks us’ in. Once hooked, the mathematical discussions around rotation and reflection follows due to a desire to understand.
What perplexing moments do you capture and share with your students? We would love to hear about them.
