“Speed dating” math style

March 26, 2018

Today we worked on our math review using a “speed dating” set up.  Partners sit across the table from each other and both solve the question in front of them.  Once both get the question, one side of the table stands up and shuffles one position to their left.  They will be sitting wih a new person and working on a new question.  They will have an expert sitting in front of them who ensures their expertise gets passed along.  After 5 minutes the “experts” will shift one space to their left and have a new partner and a new question.  

This method of review is good because everyone is working in a team, and gains knowledge and confidence working together.  Caution is needed to make sure that each question should take about the same amount of time to solve.
