(Section 3.1)
Today I put a geometry problem on the board, and wrote down the textbook's suggested 'Teacher's solution'. Then we talked abou the anatomy of a good solution, and using correct abbreviations for reasons, and some other stuff. Then I gave them a worksheet with 10 problems, and had them work on those while I copied the problems onto the blackboards. When they were done, I got a volunteer for each of the first 5 problems, and they wrote up their solutions and talked the class through what they'd done. I particularly didn't want them to talk about the problems together, so that they might not have the solution correct. They were somewhat nervous, but I think I kept the atmosphere light and friendly, and let the other students ask questions and point out errors, or ways that the proof could be clearer. At the end, there were 5 beautiful solutions on the board, and the presenters looked pretty happy. I took photos, and posted them on the wiki in our Gallery. There wasn't time for the other 5 students to do their problems; we'll do that tomorrow. I know that I was pushing the students a bit today, since they haven't had to work individually in front of the class today; I hope it was ok.
