  • Math centers
  • Guided math

Resources for getting started....

Setting the stage


•Is there time for discussion

•Is there time for small group work

•Is there time to address individual student needs


•Are there “hands-on” materials

•Are the materials easily accessible

•Does the room arrangement promote collaboration


•Are the students encouraged to take risks

•Are the students discussing and defending their mathematical positions

•Are students encouraged to continue to persist on their own and/or in groups to find solutions


•Are teachers providing the answers or asking questions that allow students to make sense of the math

•Is the lesson teacher directed or is there a mix of small group, whole group and individual
