The subject of mathematics is OLD! Pythagoras discovered his theorem around 500BC, Pi is even older, approximated in approximately 1900BC. The numbers 0 - 9 are a little newer, introduced to the world around 600AD. The newest maths most students might find is calculus, invented around 200 years ago.
But while the content may be old, the way we teach it doesn’t have to be.
In this session we will look at ways to leverage the 21 century tools, technology and knowledge we have to teach maths better.
  • Better ways of delivering instruction
  • Better ways of visualising mathematical concepts
  • Better ways for students to discover and construct mathematical knowledge
  • Better ways of providing and receiving feedback
  • Better ways of sequencing content
