Conjectures and counterexamples | Teacher Talk with Dan Finkel

“There are two words that are really important to mathematicians — conjectures and counterexamples.”

Using conjectures and counterexamples in your classroom, invites your students to prove you wrong. This inspires students to break down the process of problem-solving and be unafraid to be wrong themselves.

In this video, Dan talks about how to introduce these concepts to your class.
