Encouraging students to use critical thinking is more than an extension activity in science and math lessons, it is the basis of true learning.
One of our MSP2 members has posted a question in the MSP2 blog - http://www.msteacher2.org/profiles/blogs/is-zero-a-number. I'm hoping that some of you math folks will help her out. You can find the posting on the main page. Thanks - Kim
This is a comment from Terry Herrera about http://nyti.ms/ebMJ7F - 12 Ways to Use the NYT to Support Math Literacy (see next comment).
These topics from the NYT are excellent examples of applied math. However, I think they are at the high school interest level---unless a good teacher can really talk them up to the class. A second factor in presenting such lessons would be the time needed to investigate and analyze the newspaper data. The teacher would have to be convinced that the class time needed would be a worthwhile expenditure of this increasingly precious commodity.
