About this Grantee

To engage middle school students and preservice teachers in mathematics, Dr. Baxter, Ms. Belcher, and Ms. Vitulli use peer instruction and hand-held wireless transmitters. The team models inquiry-based methods of teaching mathematics as students respond to conceptual questions through their wireless transmitters. With an instantaneous analysis of the responses, the team refines their instruction to meet students’ needs and focus on the concepts the students are not grasping.
