We will work together to solve math problems; this method can be applied from middle school to high school. This session will be hands on and interactive. We will work together as learners to solve low-floor, high- ceiling problems. We will communicate, collaborate, reason, and persevere. We will work together as teachers to discuss a problem-solving classroom, culture, and framework. We will talk about obstacles to learning, thinking, and problem solving in math class and how to overcome them. This session will be based on work done by Grande Prairie teachers with support from the ATA Educational Trust. Teachers will leave with a resource full of big beautiful problems to explore with their colleagues and students.
