|For Catholic Members
This workshop uses Polya's four - step process as the foundation for adopting a whole school approach to problem solving in mathematics. A range of problem-solving tasks, with an emphasis for years 4 to 6, will be work-shopped, and these tasks will incorporate the fluency and reasoning proficiencies that will assist in developing the students' mathematical understandings.
Each participant will receive a problem-solving book.
