Thanks, Michael. Dan Meyer's information rings true.

Some of you might be familiar with Steve Hinds, from CUNY, who encourages similar pedagogy in the adult education/transition to college classroom. You can find a paper by Steve and examples of his teaching at: http://www.cccs.edu/Foundation/SUN/pedagogy.html (Click on the Math link.)
