Building a Positive Mathematics Community

  • Building a Positive Mathematics Community

    Hoyun Cho and Gary D. Lawrence
    The ability of students to learn mathematics with understanding is strengthened by a positive school environment (Hiebert and Grouws 2007). Such an environment depends on a classroom ethos. Just as important is the entire school community, in which all students are expected to learn through active participation and all teachers are expected to engage all students in mathematical tasks.
