Math Benders

We value hands-on, collaborative and interactive learning at Pythagoras Academy. The grade 6, 7 and 8 classes often work together in an activity that we call ‘Math Benders’. Based on ideas from Peter Liljedahl’s “Building the Thinking Classroom in Mathematics”, we work on number sense, communication and computational flexibility by tackling rich, open-ended questions in small mixed groups.
