Making Math Fun! Teaming and Creative Scheduling Is the Key.
Tozloski, Judith H.
Schools in the Middle, v5 n1 p10-12 Sep 1995
Describes the effort of a middle-school teacher to incorporate heterogeneous grouping into her math class. One day per week, heterogeneously grouped math students worked in teams to solve and present solutions to different kinds of logic problems. Suggests that flexibility and freedom to be creative are the keys for incorporating new ideas into old curriculum. (AA)
