Mathematics Education Seminar • Penny For Your Thoughts? The Power of Mathematical ReflectionExport this event to calendar

Thursday, November 29, 2018 — 10:30 AM EST

Nick Rollick, Graduate student
Department of Pure Mathematics

For this week's seminar, I invite you to join me for an informal chat about my experiences using "reflective responses" in my elementary number theory course. In these bi-weekly formal reflective assignments, my students were asked to set and monitor learning goals, identify gaps in understanding, and ponder the value and importance of their course material. Most importantly, I responded in detail to every student's reflection, creating a meaningful course-long conversation.

Please bring a writing utensil with you, as you will get the chance to do some reflection of your own! Among other things, I will share example reflective questions, implementation details, and my students' reception to these responses, leaving plenty of time for open conversation. Hopefully you will be convinced to give these a try!
