Ask the right question and you can launch a lesson!
What sorts of questions spark curiosity and stimulate mathematical thinking for all learners? And how might questions be used as a tool for extending ourselves and each other? Join us to explore these questions (pun intended…) and more as we encounter fascinating problems and mathematical ideas.
What you can expect
At this Maths Teacher Circle session, you will receive:
- 2.5 hours of high quality professional learning
- Resources for each activity you do during the session and a copy of any slides
- Dedicated time to explore and deepen your understanding of mathematical problem-solving
