Beyond just content: Using the maths proficiencies to develop skills for the future

Summary

Teaching isn’t easy. On one hand we want to develop enthusiastic, future-ready students who are engaged with their learning and can apply their knowledge to a range of situations and problems. On the other hand, sometimes we would just be happy if students could remember the strategy we showed them last week.

How can we balance the need to deliver content, while at the same time develop skills in students, such as problem solving, critical thinking and communication, that we know will help them in the future?

This workshop will attempt to answer this question by helping participants take a fresh look at the often-underappreciated maths proficiencies. It will provide examples of how the proficiencies can be incorporated into lessons and how such steps can benefit not only the development of students’ content knowledge, but also the development of skills that will help them beyond their time in the classroom.
