If you’ve wanted your math students to be stronger problem solvers who love learning math but would like tips and examples to help you get started whether you’re teaching remotely or in person, then this is the workshop for you. We’ll begin by exploring why problem solving is so important. Then we’ll discuss how it would work with your students. I’ll share video from actual students’ lessons done remotely with middle school students as well as in person with kindergarten, eighth grade, and pre-calculus students. From there we’ll focus more on implementation including how to prepare to teach a lesson and what to do if it doesn’t go as planned. We’ll then address how to use problem solving to build students procedural skills and conceptual understanding. Finally, we’ll wrap up the workshop by talking about how to merge these ideas with what you’re already doing.
