Caring matters


In the World Mathematics Year 2000 Student Essay competition conducted by the The Mathematical Association of Victoria, students described the behaviours and characteristics of their best teacher of mathematics. Caring was a common theme. This option will present a 5-dimensioned teacher-student interaction framework and share practical ways to build positive relationships with students in mathematics to enhance learning, enjoyment and confidence. Three of the five framework dimensions (framing mathematics ability, acknowledging student contributions, setting the emotional tone) are most applicable to mathematics and predictive of improved learning. Participants will be also invited to contribute ideas from their own practice. An ongoing interest group may be established.
