Bringing the Math Classroom into the 21st Century
April 20, 2015 from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
This workshop will investigate means to develop math instruction that not only focuses on student understanding of a specific topic , but also the using of inquiry and problem-based rich tasks to foster deeper conceptual understanding of mathematics as a whole. Conceptual understanding allows students to transfer their knowledge and skills to a wide variety of situations utilizing the 4 C’s of 21st Century teaching and learning; Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, and Communication.
The workshop will focus on helping teachers and administrators gain a richer understanding of math instruction, incorporating inquiry-based lessons to support student learning, and ways of assessing student performance in math classes (including triangulation of products, observations and conversations). During the workshop teachers will see sample lessons and technologies modelled for them, they will look at how rich problem solving tasks increase student understanding of math, and will participate in developing assessment tools to support balanced math assessment. The workshop is designed to provide teachers with takeaways that they can use the very next day in their classrooms.
While the main focus will be on implementation of the required components of the Ministry curriculum for grades 6 – 10, examples and resources will be shared for earlier grades as well.
