About using model trains in a school setting

Over at an Oakland math teacher writes about his experiments of using an Inglenook micro layout in a classroom setting.

In particular his description of how to introduce students to operating the railroad piece by piece, assigning the various roles, and how this leads to students being engaged and following the logic is fascinating.

I highly recommend to take a look at his blog (and start with the oldest entry at the bottom of the page!)
