Is it time for a Math Makeover?

From time to time I enjoy watching TED videos. The last TED video I shared on Catholic Christian Homeschooling was Ken Robinson's talk on education and creativity. Today's TED video comes from Math Teacher Dan Meyer.

Mr. Meyer believes that the way that math is taught in the USA is equivalent to the TV show 3 and Half Men. In short it's NOT good! The way we teach math needs a serious makeover! To understand where Mr. Meyer is coming from watch the following 12 minute TED video:

In the video Mr. Meyer mentions that the way he views math and expresses it on his blog landed him a spot on Good Morning America. According to his blog he also has most recently been on CNN. However I was unable to find a clip any where.
