Educon 2.8

Location:Philadelphia, PAUS
Date:January 29, 2016
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.
