Description

Inquiry Mathematics

Workshop Descriptor:

This workshop will engage participants in what research says about effective teaching and learning of mathematics and how this connects to inquiry. Participants will explore mathematics concepts through engagement with a range of tasks including online resources that can support the diversity of learners in any classroom. The role of high challenge tasks, digital provocations, mindsets, and organization of curriculum in creating learning environments that inspire students to think like mathematicians, will be explored. Participants will also have the opportunity, to engage with the planning process in response to the workshop.


Participants will:

  • Explore research relating to effective teaching of mathematics

  • Engage in practical mathematics inquiry and develop a deeper understanding of mathematics concepts

  • Examine the place of high challenge tasks and how to build them into a coherent program

  • Identify factors which support inquiry in the teaching and learning of mathematics

  • Reflect on the impact of the workshop on their current teaching of mathematics



Audience:

Middle, elementary and early childhood teachers of mathematics, curriculum leaders, principals.

She has been involved with the International Baccalaureate since in 2000 as a teacher, PYP coordinator, workshop leader and school visitor, regional manager for the Asia Pacific region and head of elementary for a large international school.
