Think Curriculum!

Teachers: Looking for the true and joyous way to think about and teach a curriculum topic?
Students: Looking for the true and joyous way to understand a curriculum topic?

These essays and short video presentations remove the intellectual clutter and reveal the true simplicity and elegance of thought behind various tidbits of the standard curriculum. Let's return the joy to what we teach and what we learn!

    Written for educators - and their students too! - this website, slowly growing, takes all the content Tanton has developed in his books, videos, and workshops, and organizes it into short, self-contained, and complete, curriculum units proving that mathematics, at all points of the school curriculum, can be joyous, fresh, innovative, rich, deep-thinking, and devoid of any rote doing! Let's teach generations of students to be self-reliant thinkers, willing to flail and to use their common sense to "nut their way" through challenges, to assess and judge results, and to adjust actions to find success. (Great life skills!)
