Course Description

The workshopping of concept-specific, open-ended questions is arguably the easiest and most powerful strategy to enable a class of students to grasp specific mathematical concepts. And once proficient, it requires zero prep!

This course gives insight into concept-specific, open-ended questions, why they powerfully promote conceptual understanding, and how to create them.

The key to this approach is the workshopping aspect - a technique many maths teachers are unfamiliar with. This course walks participants through, step-by-step, the workshopping process.

This course will give you unlimited ideas across every topic and year level and will have you implementing 'tomorrow'.


Ideal for all Mathematics teachers, Science teachers, Technology teachers, STEM teachers and leaders
