Pyramid is a cooperative structure where students first solve assignments in a team and then become increasingly independent. By first completing an assignment together, they can draw on each other's prior knowledge. Afterwards, students should be able to complete the assignment without each other's help.

• Form groups of 3-4 students and have each group answer some (complex) questions together. • Then form groups of 2 students and have each group answer some equivalent, but different questions together. • Finally, have students individually answer some equivalent, but different questions.

• By having students work together first and then independently, you can have them tackle relatively difficult exercises. So think about the increasing difficulty of the given assignment • Monitor whether certain groups should remain or split up, depending on their performance • Emphasize aspects of the 'growth mindset' to students if they feel uncertain

Approximately 9+ (3+ per round) relatively complex questions about the subject.
