Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

By shifting our focus from how we teach to how students learn, we can explore how to integrate simple principles, capable of fostering significant gains in student achievement, into everyday teaching. We’ll explore a variety of questions related to how tests, feedback and problem solving help students learn, such as: Are quizzes more effective than additional study time? What is the appropriate type of feedback? Is it better to practice problems of one type or several types? How can I get my students to think more carefully about mathematical problem solving? We’ll discuss how more often then not, answers to these questions are not intuitive and practice often runs contrary to the findings of research.
