What is Experience First, Formalize Later (EFFL)?

Tue, May 3, 2022 · 9:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

In this presentation, we will present a few lessons that have been developed for a student-centered classroom. In these lessons, students work in small groups to experience the learning before the teacher formalizes the learning with definitions and formulas. Using this learning structure, students engagement and retention increases, leading to better conceptual understanding over rote memorization.

Recommended Grade Level: 9 - 12

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts What is Experience First, Formalize Later (EFFL)?
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
