About Super 30: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_30
Wharton School of Management, University of Pennsylvania article:
A popular Super 30 module delivered through multimedia projectors features two teens, "B" and "R". "R", a rich kid, rides a bike and indulges in pizzas and burgers. "B", who represents a Super 30 student, is a poor kid in a kurta (light cotton shirt) and slippers who rides a cheap bicycle. But when grappling with a question, "B" responds creatively with five to eight solutions; "R" uses traditional methods of thinking. "In a geometry problem, "B" uses algebra or calculus to solve it creatively," Kumar says.
The two takeaways from the above exercise:
- Poor kids can solve problems too
- "Math and Science can be very interesting."
