Mathematics Circles: A Structured Approach to Problem Solving
Kridler, Patricia G.; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v14 n4 p214-221 Nov 2008
To guide problem-solving activities in the classroom, this article presents a strategy similar to the reading model found in literature circles. The goal of mathematics circles is to provide guidance and structure to problem-solving activities so that students can internalize the strategies needed for them to develop into mathematicians. (Contains 3 figures.)
