Course Introduction

In this seminar we will examine the relationship between the type of questions asked in class and the quality of learning that transpire in its presence. Focus is on designing tasks that increase student reasoning skills while helping them make mathematical connections and develop their understanding of mathematical concepts they explore. Working on collaborative groups the participants will have opportunities to study various types of tasks that motivate mathematical inquiry, transform traditional routine tasks used in class to the type of problems that allow for problem solving and inquiry.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • The participants will examine a variety of mathematical tasks and determine the quality of mathematics they elicit and motive
  • The participants will explore ways to transform their own questioning techniques and their tasks to allow for more sophisticated mathematical reasoning
  • The participants will develop tasks to be used in their classrooms which motivate inquiry and conceptual understanding
