Being a math teacher, we have this unique challenge that many of our colleagues don't have the pleasure of dealing with. You see, math is difficult. Math has a hard time translating to the daily lives of teenagers and, for the most part, adults. We can make math engaging, interesting, and plausible as much as we want, but there will still be human beings who see "math" as a 4-letter word (yes, I know). Heck, there's even scientific research to support Math Anxiety.
At my old site, we had this cheesy video news that played once a week and included a "Would You Rather?" segment to get kids thinking. The beef I had with it was that they were asked to choose between being blind for a day vs being deaf for a day (or something even less relevant). I liked the idea, but it got old and wasn't related to the content that I was teaching. From that, the idea came up about creating a math version of such questions to get kids thinking. Oh yeah, and there's that "Standards for Mathematical Practice" thing.
Math nerds tend to have a reputation for being math nerds. I'm here to continue that trend.
