What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Cambridge Branch - Online Event

10 February 2021

Description: There is a growing movement of mathematics teachers who are using the prompts “What do you notice? What do you wonder?” to encourage creativity and curiosity in their learners. In this session, we will look at some visual prompts with the potential to provoke questions in primary and secondary classrooms, explore the mathematics we find, and discuss how such prompts can enrich learners’ experiences of learning mathematics.
