Mediated Field experiences

The lessons we did [in MFEs] were very different from the way I learned math in elementary school. These lessons had students much more involved and engaged in the thinking and learning process. Student ideas are what led the discussion….The way I learned math was through practice problems, worksheets, and repeated, sometimes even timed, practice.
