A one day course aimed at Junior Certificate Mathematics Teachers who wish to engage with the solving of problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts. Section 4 of “Specification for Junior Cycle Mathematics” makes reference to the fact the Mathematics Specification builds on students’ prior learning and focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, reasoning, computational thinking and problem solving.
The document goes on to state in Section 10 that “Students should be able to engage in tasks in which the solution is not immediately obvious, in familiar and unfamiliar contexts.
This one day course aims at providing teachers of Junior Cycle Mathematics with a bank of questions which will aid them in achieving this goal.
There will be ample opportunity for participants to engage with the material by working through examples and discussing the solutions and there will be full worked solutions to many of the examples.
A PDF version of the presentation will be made available to all participants via email on completion of the course.
While this course is primarily directed at Junior Cycle Mathematics Teachers it would be of interest and benefit to Mathematics teachers at all levels.
THIS COURSE IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO OR LINKED TO THE CBA ON PROBLEM SOLVING
