…d put it into practice. (I reworded this sentence slightly for easier comprehension, the same idea) With a bit of research and some planning, we can discover which topics will interest the students. To give an example, taking advantage of the Olympics’ subject, you can introduce the study of angles, investigating at which angle a javelin should travel to reach farther. That is, take out the mathematics from the book and apply it to a topic of interest.
I wonder if there is a way to quickly highlight these student's interests so that a teacher can have them at hand. Maybe starting with a video that showcases the mathmatical concept?
