@ColinTGraham So... last time, we kind of got to a point where we felt there were overlaps between "real life" and "authentic", but not always #mathchat

@j_lanier @MrHonner I'm just tossing things out there. Doubt there will be anything like agreement. #mathchat

@MrHonner @ColinTGraham @cristinaluminea If that's the standard, then what math is 'inauthentic'? #mathchat

@midhamohit @ColinTGraham I don't think the method makes it real or unreal. The outcome does. Engagement is integral to good teaching methods #mathchat s

@MathLaoshi I was referring to math only but ran out of space, but yes @ColinTGraham So any learning... used for developing more is authentic? #mathchat

@MrHonner @j_lanier I honestly have no clue what people mean when they use the word. honestly I guess I should have checked the #mathchat archive.

@cristinaluminea @delta_dc I think it is both... different people learn differently, also the teacher plays a big role (it did for me any way) #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @MrHonner @cristinaluminea For me, it's about the appropriate application of the mathematics at a particular time that's authentic #mathchat athchat

@mathhombre It's not equating basketball to math that makes that authentic, but using math to model real data. #mathchat

What does 'authentic' mean in a mathematics class? (follow up)

@MrHonner @j_lanier Seems like 'authentic' is just a synonym for a bunch of different things, like 'engaging', 'effective', 'successful'. #mathchat

@j_lanier @ColinTGraham I don't know that I'd want to call anything authentic t that's in a setting more narrow than the whole wide world. #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @MrHonner @j_lanier I think it's more about the intersection of all of those areas on the Venn Diagram of defintions... ; #mathchat ;-)

@delta_dc My rule of thumb: the math lesson is more likely to be authentic if I am being thumb: authentic in its planning & implementation. #mathchat

@MrHonner @ColinTGraham @cristinaluminea So 'authenticity' is entirely dependent on student perception? #mathchat

@MrHonner @cristinaluminea Agreed about projects; but seems like they are only meaningful if they fit that particular student's interests. #mathchat

@mathhombre Having students working on GeoGebra, fitting a set of points, and then GeoGebra, trying to model Steam user data. Is one more authentic? #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @MrHonner @cristinaluminea Not just the student perception. For me, everyone involved has the 'same' perceptn of it = g group valid #mathchat

@cristinaluminea @MrHonner I think it's hard to get a student engaged in maths if they don't see a purpose in it..they don't care if it's authentic #mathchat
Mon Nov 07 21:56:20 +0000 2011 - tweet id 133664105725820929 - #237

@malynmawby Is authenticity a mindset such that doing something in virtual worlds, for example, is still authentic? #mathchat

@MathLaoshi @ColinTGraham @MrHonner Devil's advocate: so if I think math is all rote learning and so do my students, then it's authentic? #mathchat
Mon Nov 07 21:57:16 +0000 2011 - tweet id 133664341294714881 - #240

@ColinTGraham Real-life data and/or situations can result in students "buying in" to life doing the mathematics, but it's not necess the only way... #mathchat

@ColinTGraham @MathLaoshi @MrHonner Yes for that particular task. However if you *did* believe that, you have no business teaching, in my view! #mathchat elieve

@mathhombre Maybe it's like acting. An actor gives an authentic portrayal of a character. #mathchat

@mathhombre It's the acting that is authentic or not, whether the role is fictional or real whether life. #mathchat

@cristinaluminea I asked kids why they do/n't like maths and the answer was connected to them being good at it..how can this relate to authenticity #mathchat
