Developing a Whole School Approach to Problem Solving and Worded Problems | 21st March & 22nd May
Presenter - Dr Paul Swan

Students need to be problem solvers!
Futurists tell us that the rate of technology is doubling every 2 years and that today’s teenagers will have between 10 and 14 jobs by the time they are 38 years old. This means that students will have to embrace new challenges and become problem solvers. It is a known fact that multiple step worded problems create difficulty for students. In this two day workshop our major emphasis will be on a schema based approach to problem solving involving Polya and Ann Newman. Teachers will be given a range of tools to address the difficulties associated with worded problems.
