Pulling out All the Stops

This article discusses how an active learning environment was created in a community college class and a high school mathematics class using the same approach. In both settings the NCTM and AMATYC Standards, such as problem solving, communication, use of technology and alternate assessment, were fully embraced. The goal was to have students take charge of their learning, while the instructors took a secondary role to the students. The lecture time was reduced to a fraction of the class time, while collaborative learning time was maximized. The author's experience indicates that collaborative learning alone is not the solution, but integrating all of NCTM/AMATYC suggestions at every class is. Interviews with students, at different stages of the course, were used to demonstrate how this pedagogy empowered students.
