How We Approach Teaching and 学习ing


错误欢迎

研究表明,最深层次的学习来自于对解决问题过程中出现的错误的反思.

错误欢迎

高年级的微积分预备课的课堂讨论完全由学生主导. 学生做六富, exploratory problems for homework, 哪些通常可以用不止一种方式完成,或者可能有不止一个答案. 然后,他们把自己的作业带到教室,在黑板上展示,以小组形式进行讨论. If no one is willing to share his or her errors, then everyone misses out on opportunities for learning. To incentivize this behavior, students are encouraged to utilize the class’s marble jar, dropping in a marble each time a mistake is shared. When the jar is full, the class celebrates with a pizza party.
