Nick Reeb's Eighth Grade algebra class recently worked on solving a series of linear systems problems. Each boy was assigned a particular type of problem: substitution, graphing, or a word problem. After solving their individual problems at their desks, the boys went to the appropriate station and recorded their solutions, including all of the steps involved in arriving at the answer. Then, each boy presented his problem, method, and solution to his fellow classmates. Boys were actively engaged in the challenge of solving their problems, explaining their thought process, and answering questions posed by their classmates and teacher.
