Exploring Discussion Forums in Mathematics Education

Have you asked any of these questions about discussion forums?

  • What is it like to take part in online discussions?
  • How do moderators and contributors create active and successful conversations?
  • How is the technology employed in the management of discussion forums evolving?
  • What could be achieved through discussion forums in the future?

This free article at  http://www.scribd.com/doc/55142332 may be downloaded in Word of PDF format. It addresses the above questions in a conversational style and includes practical tips for online communications and learning. I co-wrote it with Rebecca Hanson, telling the story of discussions we shared on mathematics education forums.

If you are thinking of giving your child some math during the summer, http://www.goldstudent.com/ can be a good tool for you. You can think of a way to reward them for the worksheets they complete. It is amazing how well a reward can help.

GoldStudent.com is a fun, easy and effective online math enrichment and assistance program for students K-6. It is designed to help children improve their problem-solving skills, gain confidence in their math abilities and have fun while they learn.
