Math Mentoring Program Between Intermediate and Secondary Students

A session at Teaching and Learning in a Digital World 2014

  • Julia Amyotte
  • Monica Guirguis

Wednesday 20th August, 2014

1:15pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Using Microsoft Lync 2013 we had intermediate students work in groups with assigned high school mentors to complete weekly math problems through video chat. The groups used an established problem solving method (UPSC) to work through the problems; discussing strategies and collaborating effectively in order to reach solutions. The mentoring sessions allowed students to develop their problem solving skills as well as allowing the intermediate students to learn in a social context, which helped bridge the gap between how they learn at home and how they learn at school.
