More Puzzles, problems and tricks of the trade.


It’s not always easy to captivate kids in the mathematics classroom, but with some carefully crafted activities it is possible to get kids talking about the joys of mathematics that will allow teachers unique access to student thinking.

This session will run through 8 more of my favourite activities that I have accumulated over the past 20+ years of teaching secondary students in classroom settings.

These activities have been chosen as they allow students to explore mathematics and make decisions and discoveries with the teacher acting as a facilitator rather than an instructor.

Participants will be guided through the activities at an easy pace, accessible to all. Handouts will be provided so the material can be used in classes on Monday morning. Please bring a calculator if you have one with you and an inquisitive mind.
