Student centered Math

Dear David, thanks for you post. It's so clear.

I'd add some more comments: the real world based Math could be much more engaging. But it may be also true that some real-world problems still do not answer the frequent questions like:
where on earth will I be using this ?
who cares about this beautiful math shell structure ?
and so on ...

So my proposal is not only we'd better aim at real-world centered Math but also at "student-centered" Math.
What I mean is explained in this paper:

Would be great to receive your comments.

Thank you very much !

Thank you. Please let me know how it goes. I'm interested to find out how other people view solutions to this problem. In particular, I'd like to learn about more resources to make mathematics a bit more relevance or interesting for students.
