It’s time to ditch the math classrooms of yesteryear. Rows of desks, rote memorization, and traditional assessments are out–problem-based instruction and problem-based learning is in! Consider upgrading your assessment strategies with a math research assessment. In this session, we will explore what a math research assessment is, how to introduce it to your students, their impact on academic content knowledge, and guiding students through this process.
- Encourage students to develop mathematical curiosity and use inductive and deductive reasoning when solving problems.
- As an educator, become confident in using mathematics to analyse and solve problems both in school and in real-life situations.
- Help students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to complete mathematics successfully and pursue further studies in mathematics
- Incorporate ELA content and instructional strategies into mathematics.
