How To Use Cooperative Learning in the Mathematics Class. Second Edition.
Artzt, Alice F.; Newman, Claire M.
Cooperative learning has gone from an innovative teaching strategy practiced by only a few creative and courageous teachers to a strategy important to many who teach mathematics. Research suggests that learning is a social process and that cooperative learning activities are essential if students are to be able to construct their own knowledge. This book introduces new ideas and updates older methods on how to incorporate a cooperative learning approach into the K-12 mathematics classroom. Information on cooperative learning is provided with research results and strategies for using cooperative learning groups effectively in the mathematics classroom. Sample mathematics activities using cooperative groups are presented. Contains 90 references. (ASK)
