Generative Topics: Building a Curriculum around Big Ideas

Ron Ritchhart 

April 1999, Volume 5, Issue 8, Page 462

Abstract:
Through the regular use of generative topics, students develop a sense of curiosity about, and appreciation of, mathematics while acquiring skills within the context of their application rather than in isolation. Through generative topics, both students and teachers can explore and exploit a world of deep, rich, and powerful mathematics that has both focus and coherence.
