Get It Together
Solving problems in groups is exciting, effective,
and equitable; it helps all students succeed in math. Get It Together is a collection of over 100 mathematics problems for a groups of 3-6
people to solve together. The problems vary widely in difficulty, but
all have the same format: six clue cards provide the information needed
to solve a problem. Since each member of the group has a different bit
of information, everyone has to work together to arrive at a solution.
Some of the mathematics topics covered are: Logic, Numbers and Operations,
Geometry, Algebra, Probability, Measurement, and Functions. The book
also offers advice for teachers on how to introduce, facilitate, and
assess cooperative learning in their classrooms.
