Learning Math Concepts Using Collaboration

My students need a white board easel, markers, and erasers to solve problems during math workshop. We often use math workshop to learn during our block period and it will be helpful to encourage collaboration.

My Students

I teach math to approximately 90 sixth grade students in suburban Pittsburgh, PA in a grade 4-6 building. The students have been in the building for 2 years and are excited to get ready to transition to the middle school.

My math students love to explore, problem solve, and learn.

They are always inquisitive and want to know the why. We spend our block math periods exploring, using manipulatives and technology, and learning collaboratively. They enjoy working in groups to learn.

My Project

Students learn better working together! Math can sometimes be a difficult subject for some students to grasp but by working with other peers, students are able to succeed. By using math workshop in our math block, students are able to work in small groups with the teacher, use manipulatives and technology, and problem solve.

With the large dry erase easel, markers, and erasers, students will be able to learn and grasp math concepts in a group setting.

The easel will help students solve math problems collaboratively outside of their notebook or math book. They will be able to show and teach other students how to solve different math concepts. It can also be used for enrichment and remediation at various times during the day.
