Ellipse Investigation – #AskDon’tTell

One more learning investigation from our experiment – see Circle Investigation – #AskDon’tTell and Parabola Investigation – #AskDon’t Tell.

Sam designed the following ellipse investigation (EllipseInvest.tns).


Look at the continued improvement in the learners’ questions:

Sam notes that his learners are beginning to ask more mathematically relevant questions. Isn’t this exciting? Can you imagine learning math this way?

I’m pretty sure there is a hyperbola lesson coming soon.
