While watching Mythbusters last night, everything clicked with me. School, especially math class, should be like that show. Take a question, or myth, and prove/disprove it. This will create creative, patient, and energized problem solvers. I was greatly influenced by the "Bee picking up laptop" segment. The amount of math and creative ways to solve the problem is amazing. It is so beautiful. Please share any ideas as to how to make school more like Mythbusters.
Here is the video that sparked the myth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_12L_Dme8Vc
