This quote is from teacher Dan Meyer’s 2010 TED Talk about how math teachers can improve their curriculum to get kids excited about math. In this quote, Meyer is talking about an experiment he designed to get students engaged with math. This experiment requires the student to determine for themselves which criteria are important in determining the outcome. Encouraging this type of thinking, says Gilbert, is unusual in math curriculum.
