This blog post discusses the positive outcomes of cooperative learning and students working together to practice what they have learned. What's even better is that students do not really notice that they are practicing through solving several problems because they are having fun doing it. "Speed dating" in the math classroom is a great way for students to gain extra practice in refining skills that are needed to be successful in the current material and future concepts, as well. During the first round, students become experts on their problem with soem scaffolding provided by the teacher. From then on, when they switch partners each round, students are able to explain their processes to each other and help one another understand that specfic problem while working on solving their partner's problem. A fun, engaging, and meaninful way to allow students to really grasp the material at-hand.

This blog post, written by a high school math teacher, provides teachers with some great scaffolding materials for students to easily remember the many aspects of graphing using the slope-intercept form. Students can create a y = mx+b foldable in their notebooks to help them remember the different parts of the formula and the meaning of each. They can also create rise over run reminders, using large plus and minus signs when dealing with positive and negative slopes. The post provides readers with the templates for both the foldable and the rise over run reminders, so it is easy to print and ready to use in your math classroom! This is a great post on how to make Algebra much more interactive and more easily comprehensible, while providing students more hands-on and visual opportunities to learn the concept.

This is an awesome example of the many different assessment tools out there for teachers' use. This tool in particular is a great graphic organizer for students to evaluate their own understanding and knowledge of a topic. This can be used before, during, or even after a concept has been taught. Students can self-assess their learning of the material throughout the unit and recognize where they are and where they want to go in terms of the learning obective.
