Description

This new APSMO Inc professional learning course will showcase a range of strategies for teaching problem solving in mathematics. Designed for those teaching Kindergarten to Year 2, this course will address commonly held myths about mathematics and early learners, outline the reciprocal link between teacher enthusiasm and teaching quality, and promote problem solving for young learners as an effective strategy for mathematical engagement and success.

Additional Information

During this practical and engaging workshop, teachers will:

• review key research examining the substantial learning benefits of engaging young children with challenging mathematical ideas;

• participate in a wide range of hands-on collaborative mathematical tasks, exploring teaching models and strategies for engaging young students;

• explore strategies to introduce problem solving techniques and promote mathematical inquiry; and,

• investigate ways to promote mathematical habits of mind through building a community of learners.
