Description

Developing a Whole School Approach to Problem Solving especially solving Maths Word Problems

In this two day course participants will be given a range of support documents for developing a coherent approach to problem solving in mathematics. A particular focus will be on the literacies required to cope with solving word problems. Practical advice and 'hands-on' support materials will be provided to get a school going on the path to a coherent approach to problem solving across the school. Some reference will be made to NAPLAN as a source of word problems. Schools are encouraged to send along more than one staff member so plans for implementing a school-wide approach can be formulated.
