Guiding Young Mathematicians in Small-Group Meetings
Traditionally, small-group math instruction has been used as a format for reaching children who struggle to understand. Math coach Kassia Omohundro Wedekind uses small-group instruction as the centerpiece of her math workshop approach, engaging all students in rigorous "math exchanges." The key characteristics of these mathematical conversations are that they are (1) short, focused sessions that bring all mathematical minds together, (2) responsive to the needs of the specific group of mathematicians, and (3) designed for meaningful, guided reflection.
