A Problem Solving Course for HS or CC Emphasizing Oral and Written Communication

Students taking this course learn specific problem solving strategies and then use them to solve a wide variety of difficult problems. The students work extensively in groups, make oral presentations to the whole class, and turn in problem solutions combining math symbols, diagrams, and written paragraphs. This session will go into some detail of how to set up a course like this, how the course is run, what the students gain from taking the course, and where the course might fit into the curriculum at both high school and community college. Participants will work in groups to solve problems and see many examples of student work.
