Take a Chance on Me!


This workshop presents our implementation of an inquiry based teaching approach with an emphasis on constructivism and reflection in middle years mathematics and the benefits this has had for the engagement and learning of all our students, particularly for those who were previously disengaged from their learning. In the Year 8 probability unit of work, students utilise an inquiry based approach to create their own board-games. Ensuring that the games are successful and fun to play requires a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the real-world impact of probability than is often achieved in the traditional, textbook learning approach. In addition to reviewing the inquiry based approach, workshop participants will have the opportunity to design, play and evaluate their own probability based board-games and then consider how the reflection process can be used to further develop students’ understanding in the maths classroom.
