Innovative pedagogy or methodology that produces exponential results—for example, students acting like little mathematicians investigate real-world problems, then try submitting their results to reputable journals.
Unlike rote learning that produces incremental results, radical math learning motivates teachers to challenge students to go beyond scoring a decent grade in math—students not only learn to be creative problem solvers, but also become researchers and problem posers.
