Dan Meyer writes about Unnatural Currents. Here’s an example from the Geo textbook I “use”.

“The saddest part of all this “reform” are the attempts to “make math interesting” and “relevant to kids’ lives.” You don’t need to make math interesting— it’s already more interesting than we can handle! And the glory of it is its complete irrelevance to our lives. That’s why it’s so fun!”
