Description

This event will be held in Botanical 1 & 2.

So many teachers of Year 11 students are frustrated because their students cannot do investigations. 

We will consider questions such as:
•    What makes a 'good' investigation? 
•    Should all students experience investigations? 
•    Do students magically develop investigative skills? 
•    Are investigations only for secondary students?
•    Should investigations only be used for summative assessment?

This workshop will include opportunities to:
•    identify and incorporate investigative thinking
•    explore tasks that can be used to teach investigative skills
•    understanding the place for the proficiencies in investigations
•    collaborative write some investigations


For maximum benefit attendees are encouraged to bring an investigation to discuss, share and tweak. Prior to the workshop you will be sent an email advising the number of copies you will need to print for this workshop.

Every attendee will receive a complimentary copy of Maths Enrichment Topics Year 5 to 8 by Jack Bana, Linda Marshall and Paul Swan.
