Have you ever wondered if there's a simple way to get students more engaged in a math class? Do you feel that students would benefit from an enhanced focus on conceptual learning in math? If so, there's a simple solution: Let students vote. This session describes different ways to incorporate student voting into mathematics classes, particularly through the use of classroom response systems or "clickers". Of particular interest is peer instruction, a teaching technique that combines the best elements of the flipped classroom, direct instruction, and collaborative learning with a twist of voting to make it all work.
