Silent Starters
Morris, Emma
Mathematics Teaching, n224 p8-9 Sep 2011
The "silent starter" is an idea that the author was reminded of during Christopher Martin's session at the ATM conference in 2011, entitled "Big Ideas". This was a nice idea for introducing, or practising mappings, but it was not the first time the author had encountered this powerful teaching tool. The idea is best explained with an example, and the author begins with the example Christopher used in the session.
