SMILE Project and the Math Forum
August 30, 2012
1: I Notice/I Wonder activity (along with a few other Understand the Problem activities we often do as well):
2: Our flow-chart of group problem solving:
3: Quantities/Relationships activity (along with some other mathematizing activities):
4: Lists we made of minimizing and maximizing the effects of study groups:
To recap that activity, I gave you a few minutes to do a 2 minute role-play about the "worst study group ever." Then, we listed the things we can do to minimize the effectiveness of study groups. On the flip side, we listed things we can do (personally) to make study groups more effective for us.
5: Finally, that list became a checklist we could use to make sure our study groups were effective (I included a few ideas from past years of SMILE mentors):
