I’ve been thinking about math exercises that bring out creativity in their solutions, and for lack of a better term, I just call them “Flexible questions.”
I included these in tweet form because the responses are amazing.
In terms of how to use these, I would use it as a bonus question on a test or a “for fun” warm-up question. I haven’t used these in the classroom but I will definitely use these in the Fall semester.
Let me know if you use any of these in your classes! Thanks for reading.
