Program Overview

This two-day workshop will help leaders lay the foundation for a coherent Problem-Solving Maths Program. Clearly many students who struggle with problem solving, including bright students fail to comprehend what is required to solve problems, particularly word problems. Participants will be provided with a framework for developing problem solving across the school. A tool for improving mathematical literacy will be shared and leaders will be shown how to modify or create their own tool that may be used across the school.

Content

  • Participants will examine the Understanding Problem Solving and Reasoning Proficiency Strands of the Mathematics Curriculum with reference to the role language plays.
  • An overall problem-solving approach will be explained
  • The three literacies associated with mathematics will be explained
  • An approach to developing literacy (specifically Vocabulary) will be explained
  • Techniques for improving comprehension of mathematics problems will be explained. (Note while the Bar Model – ‘Singapore Maths’ will be discussed among others this course in NOT about the bar model.)

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • Examine and review their current approach to problem solving.
  • Develop their own school approach to Problem Solving based on the context of their school.
  • Start implementing a program for improving the literacies associated with learning mathematics.
