With the relentless demands on classroom teachers, we have to work quite hard to ‘make space’ for ourselves and our students to engage with mathematical ideas that interest us, in a playful and curious way. Despite playfulness and curiosity being the essence of what mathematicians bring to a problem, I contend that ‘school and system demands’ pose many barriers to teachers and students behaving in a similar way.
This session will share some classroom and whole-school approaches that we, as teachers, might develop a sense of community between ourselves and amongst our student in exploring some problems, and develop some dispositions that I perceive mathematicians might naturally do.
Please bring your playfulness and curiosity to bear on a problem or two. And before I forget, also bring your iThing to use as well.
