Problem solving is an effective way for students to learn to think mathematically and to acquire deep knowledge and understanding of the mathematics they are learning.

In this day of professional learning, we will look at a series of tools, emerging from research, that can help to build an environment conducive to problem-based learning. We will unpack the research behind Thinking Classrooms which demonstrates that a problem-based learning environment and culture can quickly be established, even in classrooms where students resist change.

The intermediate workshop is appropriate for teachers who have attended the introduction workshops and those who have been implementing Building Thinking Classrooms and are ready to push their practice. Teachers will experience a Thinking Classroom from the perspective of a student, dig into the teacher moves that help facilitate an effective Thinking Classroom, and become familiar with the research behind Building Thinking Classrooms.

These topics will be covered in the workshop:

  • Homework
  • Student Autonomy
  • Consolidation
  • Notes
  • Formative assessment
