This is the PreCalculus H class working together on their problem set. I really value our use of problems sets in class. They are more challenging problems that require more time to process, and require working with other students. The anonymous student feedback at the end of the year continually mentions how much the students come to value these assessments.
To set the class up for success, I gave them 15 min at the end of a block to work together on the problem set. They can choose to work however they’d like. My only rule? No writing on paper. They can work together on whiteboards and then take pictures if they’d like to record the work done. This rule worked as anticipated, they naturally broke into groups and had some fantastic discussions.
