*** My "Team Tasks" are created to be completed in Teams of four. Each student is a team member: Team Member (A), Team Member (B), Team Member (C), and Team Member (D). Each team member is required to participate regularly throughout the "Team Task" as Team Mathematician. My cooperative learning "Team Tasks" require the students to be actively involved throughout the entire "Team Task". The Role of "Team Mathematician" alternates throughout the "Team Task". My "Team Tasks" are designed to elicit mathematical discourse within the teams.
