The Walking Dead – Exponentially

The little things that make teaching math fun…

I also think this is a decent example of forced context vs. fun context. If you’re dead-set on putting math “in a context” that students understand, you get the forced contexts that fill our textbooks. But if you open your eyes to the world around you and get a little creative, then that context isn’t as forced.

Cells reproducing in biology or zombies and America’s hottest show? You tell me what is more engaging.

PS: Now, if there were a nice video prompt for this instead of simply a screen-grab from The Walking Dead, then that would be the cherry on the top.
