]]>I did a lot of these with my 2Ps last semester. I got a ton of games/puzzles/challenges from Math Equals Love. I also used some of the Waterloo problems of the week and we did the 12 Days of Math challenge from Mashup Math before Christmas Break.

That was the first course I’d done so much of this with and it was great to see how much it increased engagement. Many of these are low floor activities so I found that even my students who were struggling with the course content still bought into them. It was a way to hand those students in particular some success and build their confidence. I will definitely be incorporating this strategy into all of my classes in the future!

]]>I might add another reminder, that’s like your reminder 3: Class is good if you can meet with some success each time. We did a lot of review in Kendo, and while there were always tweaks to be made, it helped that even the most advanced classes started with re-practicing the basics, which we all knew how to do. Then came the push onward and upward into new things.

Best of luck with the socks – I’ve learned to knit several times, but could never figure out how to purl!!
