The Math Forum @ Drexel - mathforum.org Students solving mathematical problems in small groups invokes three features that enhance the individual student’s cognitive (re)organization of mathematics: 1. The student experiences “challenge and disbelief” on the part of the other members of the group, which forces them to examine their own beliefs and strategies closely. 2. The group collectively provides background information, skills, and connections that a student may not have or understand. 3. The student might internalize some of the group’s problem solving. (Noddings, 1985)
