TITLE: WTF Problems and Answers for Questions Unasked AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: January 12, 2015 10:26 AM DESC: ----- BODY: Dan Meyer quotes Scott Farrand in WTF Math Problems:
Anything that makes students ask the question that you plan to answer in the lesson is good, because answering questions that haven't been asked is inherently uninteresting.
My challenge this semester: getting students to ask questions about the programming languages they use and how they work. I myself have many questions about languages! My experience teaching our intro course last semester reminded me that what interests me (and textbook authors) doesn't always interest my students. If you have any WTF? problems for a programming languages course, please share. -----
