13- Providing Productive Feedback for Students' Proofs

Thursday, November 29, 2012: 8:00 AM-9:00 AM
Gold Coast (Hyatt)
Lead Speaker:
Sharon K. Strickland

In this session, we offer examples of students’ paragraph proofs and the feedback given by instructors. We comment on feedback techniques that helped students become better at writing proofs, as well as techniques that were not as productive. We discuss thinking of proof writing through a lens of communication akin to essay writing.
