Overview: We are in a changing paradigm of education. One that is focused on high expectations for all learners more than ever. Mathematics has been identified as an area for major improvement across not only NSW but Australia as a whole. Learners need to be able to solve problems by using what they know in maths not just memorising facts and algorithms. In this workshop you will learn how to create authentic, open problem solving questions, strategies to deliver problem solving effectively to engage all learners and how you can track and measure problem solving in your classrooms.
