  • Pen Pals: Practicing Problem Solving

    Kristen Lampe, Linda Uselmann
    A semester-long pen-pal project in which preservice teachers composed mathematical problems and the middle school students worked for solutions. The college students assessed the solution and the middle school students provided feedback regarding the problem itself. This activity fit well into Standards-based classrooms as well as within the constraints of the college semester.
