Productive struggle

March 6, 2017

Today grade 10s worked thtrough a challenging problem to determine the height of a triangle algebraically.

Working together, with whiteboards, was a good way to get an idea of what the problem entailed.
Some groups were able to help others once they got on the right track.

These types of questions stretch your brain, and problem solving skills.  The struggle is ok, it’s expected when you do something new.  We are working on being more comfortable with productive struggle.
