Thursday, January 11, 2018 — ST. CHARLES, Mo. – Mathematics requires the ability to effectively problem solve. Finding the right balance between challenging students with math problems versus frustrating students is important for developing critical problem-solving skills. ORIGO Education will delve into this topic during a two-part edWebinar series called What’s the Problem? The series will focus on two key areas: part one, Finding the Right Problem to Challenge Students and part two, Creating a Supportive Environment for Problem Solving in the Math Classroom.
Sara Delano Moore, a contributing author to Visible Learning for MathematicsTM, will guide educators through the fundamentals of choosing tasks of the right difficulty and complexity based on students’ needs and classroom dynamics. During the first edWebinar, Finding the Right Math Problem to Challenge Students on edWeb.net, Wednesday January 17, 2018 at 4 p.m. EST, Moore will examine the phases of learning using John Hattie’s Visible LearningTM research and explore problem-solving strategies to allow teachers to sequence problems for maximum student growth and understanding.
“Teaching problem-solving skills to students is not a one-size-fits-all approach, but instead, it’s an understanding about how to customize and develop approaches to provide effective problem-solving instruction in the classroom,” states Moore.
This is the first in a two-part series to be presented on edWeb.net. On Wednesday, February 7, 2018, at 4:00 p.m. EST, Moore will continue with Creating a Supportive Environment for Problem Solving in the Math Classroom. Among the discussion, educators will learn strategies for how to group students in math problem-solving lessons in the classroom.
