Creating Challenging Problem Solving Tasks For All Students

Summary

In this workshop, we explore how to plan and present challenging problem solving tasks that will engage all of your students, from the most reluctant to those who are extremely confident problem solvers. We will look at the ways in which the cognitive challenge for each individual student can be increased by outlining some simple steps that will help teachers write effective enabling and extending prompts. The factors that impact on engagement will also be discussed, with a focus on how challenging problems can be used to stimulate student motivation.
