|"What if there was a way to make the thinking of each student visible to the teacher throughout the lesson?" 360 Degree Math classes begin with the teacher personally greeting each student as she enters the classroom ("The Exchange"); students solving three relatively simple problems at the whiteboard to build their confidence ("The Rewind"); a short lecture that introduces new concepts ("The Micro-Lecture"); a return to the whiteboard, where students solve more challenging problems, facilitated by group discussions and collaboration ("The Practice"); and individual work on the boards for the teacher to review in the mode of formative assessment ("The Proof"). A progress bar visually charts student performance.|
