In “the most rewarding first day in 30 years,” a calculus teacher presented students with some curious graphs, and students learned to “discuss mathematical information without any fear ” by using the Question Formulation Technique.
Here are 3 key resources for implementing the QFT in the math classroom.
In math classrooms around the country and world, students using the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) are asking questions like: “How…
One educator asks a question that we hear often at the Right Question Institute: “at the end of the day what types of math questions get answered and what math actually gets learned? Are [students]…able to generate questions about a specific area of math that actually allows the student to learn – math?”
This webinar is presented by Oklahoma Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and facilitated by Telannia Norfar, a mathematics teacher at…
Lucy Canotas, a fourth-grade teacher in Manchester, New Hampshire, used the QFT to learn more about what her students knew or did not know about fractions. This video shows Canotas using a visual Question Focus to stimulate students’ questions. She leads her class through each step of the Question Formulation Technique, all the way through their reflections at the end on what they learned and liked about the process.
