To create confident problem solvers, we must not kill student thinking. Learn to use the 5 Principles of Conjecture, Communication, Collaboration, Chaos, and Celebration to design a classroom environment that promotes innovation, and allows students to communicate thinking clearly. Small groups will reflect on how this translates into classroom practice. They will also experience specific strategies associated with the 5 Principles and create a plan for redesigning their own school cultures.

Students pursue problems they’re curious about, not problems they’re told to solve. Creating a math classroom filled with confident problem solvers starts by encouraging students to investigate provocative questions, not by prescribing a sequence of mechanical exercises. In this session, participants will debunk 4 pervasive myths about math learning. They will also explore and develop a thoughtful approach for instilling a culture of innovative thinking in the math classroom through five powerful, yet straightforward principles: Conjecture, Collaboration, Communication, Chaos, and Celebration. 5 Principles of the Modern Mathematics Classroom offers new ideas for inspiring math students by building a more engaging and collaborative learning environment.
