Mathematics Circles: A Structured Approach to Problem Solving
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
To guide problem-solving activities in the classroom, this article presents a strategy similar to the reading model found in literature circles. The goal of mathematics circles is to provide guidance and structure to problem-solving activities so that students can internalize the strategies needed for them to develop into mathematicians.
