Engaging Mathematics: Increasing Academic Engagement through Classroom Environment

Friday, November 10
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Exhibit Hall Roundtable 10

Students who report high levels of academic engagement in their mathematics classes also have higher levels of academic success, lower levels of boredom, and an increased likelihood to continue in a STEM-related career. One way teachers might increase engagement in mathematics among gifted students is to create a learning environment that provides support to learners while offering appropriate challenges for gifted students. This session, constructed primarily for those who teach mathematics, demonstrates several ways in which teachers can work to cultivate an environment that might help to increase engagement in their mathematics students.
