Cooperative Learning in Math Reform
    According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, students should be provided opportunities to "organize and consolidate their mathematical thinking through communication" and "communicate their mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers, teachers, and others" (NCTM 348).  Cooperative learning is one way in which to accomplish these imperative goals in a classroom that is based on the principles of reform mathematics.  This page will provide many useful tips about establishing and maintaining a cooperative learning environment that will have a positive effect on the communication and learning of all students in the classroom.
