Engagement in Math Learning
Design Challenge Question: How can we make learning math more engaging?
The method used to tackle this essential question is to use the “Double Diamond Model” of the design process.
By using a peer interview method, we were able to collect as much data as possible on our teaching process and specific issues we face in our classrooms. Collaboratively, the information gathered from the interview was analyzed and used to generate as many potential problems as we can think of.
Looking at all the proposed problems from phase 1, we converged and isolated on the core problem. This core problem is put into the statement of “How might we…”
Using 2 design processes, we mapped out the solution and how it is connected to the curriculum through the Programs of Study.
The final product or an example of the solution is produced in this phase.
