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.
