Supporting Problem Based Instruction
Developing expertise in a Problem Centered Classroom brings together the expertise of mathematics education leaders such as John Van de Walle, Mary K. Stein, and Phil Daro to discover and examine the teaching and learning benefits of focusing on a central challenging problem or set of problems within a classroom lesson. Problem based lessons must be taught in a risk-taking supportive environment which challenges students to apply their mathematical understandings in a variety of situations. - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com

How to use math talk cards/posters to promote student-led discussions | Supporting Problem Based Instruction | Scoop.it
It’s fairly simple to get kids talking (and writing) about math strategies during whole-class strategizing sessions, small group modeling, and one-on-one practice. We as teachers just memorize the leading questions (How do you know? Can you prove your answer? What’s another way to solve?) and we have lots of go-to phrases that help us push…

mrsjgarcia's curator insight, May 15, 2014 9:17 AM

I have one to add. It is not so much an issue but a way of working that functions for me. Students often won't want to put the devices down and listen once they are in their hands. I use the "upside down iPads" command for when I want their attention. They can also turn them upside down to indicate that they have finished a task.
