Developing Problem Solving in Y12Sheffield
This workshop places the development of Problem Solving at the forefront of our practice, and considers why it is important, and how it is done well.
As teachers of maths we all teach problem solving, and we all know that it is hard to do well. It is abstract and therefore tough for many students (ranging across all of the already abstract areas of maths); it is essential, and yet it is easy to downplay it in our classroom in the battle to cover all the skills.
This course provides an efficient and effective way to enhance the development of problem solving skills in your classroom.
Who will benefit from attending?
The course is aimed at both new and experienced teachers of Single Maths.
The course aims to give teachers a chance to reflect on their own approach to problem-solving in the classroom, share and appreciate best practice and implement it in their plans for future teaching.
