How to Use Rich Mathematical Tasks, with Lucie Cheeseman, Auckland
How to use rich mathematical tasks to integrate and connect your mathematics programme
This course will define and explore the meaning of a rich mathematical task.
A range and variety of rich mathematical tasks will be used to support teachers knowledge and understanding of the NZC levels and develop key subject content knowledge of mathematics.
Teachers will be encouraged and supported to begin planning their own rich mathematical tasks that are personalised and responsive to their learners and school context.
The rich mathematical tasks will be used as a way of exploring the variety of connections that can be made across an integrated mathematics curriculum.
We will explore:
Key research that enables explicit understanding of what a mathematical rich task looks like.
take part in a range of mathematical rich tasks in a team environment.
How to plan for rich mathematical tasks that are relevant and responsive to each teachers context and students.
At the completion of the course participants will be able to:
Understand and define what makes a rich mathematical task.
Identify the key components in creating a rich mathematical task.
Begin planning a rich mathematical task that enables connections across each of the different mathematics strands.
