Facilitating a Collaborative Math Classroom
In this course, the ideas behind creating a successful collaborative math classroom are discussed. Research has shown that if we want students to engage in discussing and explaining ideas, challenging and teaching one another, creating and solving each other’s questions and working collaboratively that we must create an atmosphere that builds positive relationships, honors risk-taking, and celebrates student interaction.
By participating in the course, you will learn the essential components needed to create a collaborative environment where students further develop their abilities to problem solve, foster their communication skills, and will receive the maximum benefits from learning math. You will also be able to use these components to facilitate collaboration in your own math classroom.
