Collaboration in Math Class!
Research suggests that students learn from their teachers but learn more deeply when they talk about and apply their knowledge. Which is why we stress collaboration on the Phoenix team. Students are shown here deliberating whether or not triangles are similar based on what they learned this week about angles. They were challenged to present evidence to back their claim and to use only the evidence they were given. As you can see here, our students were deeply engaged in their work and their intense collaboration on this project was obvious!
