Flipped learning - a mathematics experience for year 9 boys

Summary

Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach in which the conventional notion of classroom-based learning is inverted, so that students are introduced to the learning material before class, with classroom time then being used to deepen understanding through discussion with peers and problem-solving activities facilitated by teachers. This innovative pedagogical approach was implemented in mathematics lessons for a year nine class of all boys at a school in metropolitan Melbourne. Since the students are introduced to the content prior to the mathematics lesson, the classroom activities focus more on collaborative and tactile activities. Feedback from students towards this teaching approach has been positive, explaining that they value the ‘introduction’ and ‘review’ of mathematical content that is readily available to them in a video form. The engagement of the students in the classroom has increased as well as their independence with their mathematics learning.
