Unlocking the Potential of all Mathematicians – K-6

PL # 12529.


Starting on 19 Mar 2020
Cancellation permitted until 12/03/2020

Event registrations closed on 16/03/2020



Challenging tasks are complex and absorbing

mathematical problems with multiple solution


(Sullivan & Mornane, 2013).

The professional learning will focus on:

  • Identifying the key features of challenging tasks
  • Engaging in examples of challenging tasks
  • Investigating prompts and strategies to enable and extend all mathematicians
  • Exploring the proficiencies – understanding, fluency, problem solving and reasoning
  • Considering strategies to build a community of mathematicians who persist, cooperate and demonstrate flexible thinking.

If you have attended Andrea’s Professional Learning programs in 2018/9 you will know that this session will be ‘jam – packed’ with challenging mathematics tasks.

Be prepared to view, discuss, solve, think, participate, differentiate, collaborate, record and reflect!





Andrea Hillbrick

Andrea’s talent for converting cutting edge educational theories into simple and immediately usable teaching techniques has seen her travel the country improving educational outcomes for students and job satisfaction levels for teachers. This stems from two of her innate qualities – a down to earth nature and a relaxed ability to simplify the complex.

For close to a decade, Andrea has been working collaboratively with School Leadership Teams, Professional Learning Teams and professional organisations to enrich outcomes for school communities. By demonstrating real classroom scenarios she is able to provide teaching strategies to be implemented ‘the very next day’.
