Teaching More by Teaching Less
Getting Learners to Make Use of Their Natural Powers
‘Problem Solving’ is back on the agenda; training learners to carry out procedures is the focus of education managers. How then do we teach in a manner consistent with our own ideals, namely that learners become independent learners, taking mathematical initiative and developing both their disposition to think mathematically and the use of their mathematical powers?
Participants will be invited to engage in some mathematical tasks by means of and through which we can discuss these and similar topics. Tasks will range from years 1 through 10 and will be approachable by teachers of any ages.
Delivered by John Mason
