Poster Problems for Diagnostic Teaching in Mathematics
Poster Problems encourage students to develop their mathematical thinking through problem solving, groupwork and discussion, and visual representations. Teachers are able to assess learners’ understanding in real time. Though targeted at middle schoolers, the twelve curated problems cover relevant math concepts and skills such as ratios and rate, negative numbers, triangle geometry, and statistics. Explanatory “teacher tune ups” and tips are included on the website.
