This research study addresses the think-pair-share cooperative learning technique and its effects on students’ confidence in their abilities to do mathematics and their willingness to participate in class discussion. The study found that students’ participation increased, the number of long explanations given by students increased, and students comfort and confidence when contributing to class discussion also increased.
