Vertical Whiteboarding: Riding the Wave of Student Activity in a Mathematics Classroom
Forrester, Tricia; Sandison, Carolyn E.; Denny, Sue
Australian Mathematics Teacher, v73 n4 p3-8 2017
In 2014 we commenced working on the Inspiring Mathematics and Science in Teacher Education (IMSITE) project, aimed at improving mathematics and science education in Australia by improving the recruitment, development, and retention of mathematics and science teachers. In this project we undertook a range of activities, the most exciting of which was the introduction of whiteboarding as a tool to actively engage high school students with mathematics. This paper describes our journey introducing whiteboarding into local high school mathematics classes, and teachers' and students' perspectives of whiteboarding.
