Mini Math Offices: Great Guided Math Tool and Personal Reference
I have been doing some research on the value of mini math offices lately. I will be writing a few posts on them this week. Math mini offices are like personal resource kits for students. They are folders with vital reference material right at students’ fingertips. You put the relevant reference material for the grade level and the topic. I would do mini offices with a pure math focus but I can see the benefit of having interdisciplinary ones. I would also differentiate the material in them according to the needs of the learner. I definitely might have the students bring these sometimes to small guided math group sessions. Here is a video with some of the resources on this page (scroll down midway).
