Fostering Persistence: 3D Printing and the Unforeseen Impact on Equity
FitzPatrick, Daniel L.; Dominguez, Victoria S.
Mathematics Teacher, v111 n3 p182-188 Nov 2017
Teaching persistence and problem solving must begin with selecting a problem that can be solved mathematically, that allows for multiple methods of solving, and that generally captures the attention and curiosity of the student (Marcus and Fey 2003; NCTM 1991; Van de Walle 2003). This article shows how a STEM three-dimensional (3D) printing challenge invited a traditionally underrepresented student to persist and problem solve across disciplines.
