Wikis are a tool that I have thought of as useful in other disciplines, but not math. I have viewed wikis in disciplines such as English and History. Wikis seemed like logical tools to use in these areas.
I was excited to see this math wiki. I like how the teacher used it as a way for students to summarize their learning and also be able to share what they have learned with others. I see it as a good way to allow students to study for a major assessment and I plan to break may class into small groups and let them do something similar this year. I plan to have students read and comment on one another’s entries, post questions for clarification like Cool Cat teacher described. I think that this will help all students to prepare, and give me a clear picture of what they think is important. If they leave out some important pieces, I can know that before the assessment and bring it to their attention.
