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 tackles the topic head on during a two-part edWebinar series called What’s the Problem? The series focuses 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, walks educators through the fundamentals of choosing tasks of the right difficulty and complexity based on students’ needs and classroom dynamics. In the first edWebinar, Finding the Right Math Problem to Challenge Students, which aired Wednesday, January 17, 2018 on edWeb.net, Moore explored, among many topics, problem-solving strategies that 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.
The second in the What’s the Problem? two-part series will be presented on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, at 4:00 p.m. EST. During the live edWebinar, Moore will continue the topic 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.
