Scaffolding small heterogeneous student-groups while discussing mathematics

PhD candidate: Sharon Calor, MSc

In a quasi-experimental study the effect of teacher support (scaffolding) adapted to the level of small heterogeneous student-groups on the quality of mathematical discussions and mathematical level raising of the students is investigated. Fourteen heterogeneous 7th grades classes of a large secondary school participate in this study.

This project is part of an NWO PHD scholarship for teachers.
