There is overwhelming evidence that when students engage in mathematical activity in math class ("active learning"), they learn more and they develop more positive identities with respect to mathematics. ## Summaries from mathematical organizationsThe blog posts and reports below, from mathematical organizations, summarize the evidence for active learning. They are written for college math teachers: - MAA: Evidence for IBL
- AMS: Active learning in mathematics
- CMBS: Active learning in post-secondary mathematics education
## Scientific papersThe papers below are scientific papers that present evidence for active learning. ## The counter-argumentDespite the overwhelming evidence for active learning, nothing is ever cut-and-dried in educational research. Below a well-known critique of so-called "minimal guidance" pedagogies including active learning, along with responses to the critique. |
