Subject: Re: Checks for understanding

Thanks for your ideas. We do work in groups - I use this mainly for checking homework at the beginning of class, so that students have the opportunity to hear another student's explanation of the procedure, but your idea of a round-robin type of answer to some practice questions is something I hadn't thought of. Your first suggestion is a practice I use with my Applied Math students, not so much with my Geometry - I don't know why not, but it is a good idea to use that with the other classes as well. Thanks again.
