4 Math Problems Worth Solving That Students Will Love
Wednesday, March 21, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Presented by Patrick Vennebush, Math Education Consultant, Falls Church, VA
Sponsored by MathResources Inc.
The old adage says that math textbooks are sad because they have too many problems, but in truth, they’re sad because they have too many exercises. When students attempt challenging “problems worth solving,” they develop conceptual understanding and improve procedural fluency. When carefully selected and sensibly implemented, great problems allow struggling students to participate while still challenging your highest achievers.
In this edWebinar, tackle four math problems worth solving with math education consultant Patrick Vennebush. In this session, he discusses:
- Three strategies for successfully implementing the four demonstrated problems in your classroom
- How to identify additional math problems worth solving
- A dozen resources where you can find more problems worth solving
This recorded edWebinar is designed for educators and administrators working with middle school and high school students.
