A CONFLICT-CENTRIC APPROACH TO MATHEMATICS

Malcolm Swan Conflict and Discussion Approach to Mathematics

Evidence of good mathematical conflict. Students talking about math.A debate about why / what answer?Little teacher directionRelevance being able to make connections between everyday experienceTask offers multiple possible solutionsTask links several mathematical conceptsAll student levels are engagedEmphasis on processArguing different methods about solving the problem.Evidence of bad (or no) mathematical conflict.SleepingAnswers are on the boardNotetakingNo surprisesStudents are quiet little islandsComputationsTeachers throat hurts theyre doing all the workLack of words / word wallsStudents not helping each otherNo questions

Using Problems to create conflict in a PBL Classroom
