Station teaching is a great method to achieve academic success. It provides an opportunity for students to focus on one challenging question for 5-8 minutes at a time. Therefore, students don’t feel the pressure of having to finish a long assignment and make careless errors do to time restraints. After students are taught a mathematical concept or a variety of concepts, station teaching is an excellent tool for teachers to assess their student’s knowledge on the topic(s). During station teaching, educators will be able to take ample notes and collect important data that can be used to bridge any student gaps they find. Station teaching is also a great way to review material prior to giving an exam.
In this package, students will visit six different work stations where they will have to use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, create mathematical equations that represent a real world scenario, compute addition and subtraction problems with integers, create a real world scenario based on an equation with integers, and solve an error analysis question.
