Eddie Woo: GERRIC Masterclass for Secondary Teachers 30 October 2018

Presenter: Eddie Woo

Dates: 30 October 2018

Time: 9.00am - 12.30pm

Session 1: Principles of Engaging Mathematics Teaching for advanced learners in the diverse classroom

One of the central challenges to effective mathematics learning is that we must cultivate an environment and a view of mathematics that motivates all students to undertake the work of learning. In this session, we will explore aspects of mathematics that are often under-emphasised but must be recovered to engage a broad range of students, including gifted students, in our beautiful and practical subject. Strategies to engage more advanced learners who are often disengaged and demotivated by lack of scaffolding and lack of challenge will be explored.

Session 2: Mathematical Playfulness

Expanding on one of the themes from the earlier session, Eddie will be demonstrating the ways in which playfulness can be used as a context for mathematical reasoning and conversation—using just a standard deck of playing cards.
