Making Maths Engaging for Students AND Teachers!

Summary

Students often say that what we are teaching them has little relevance or purpose. Much of what is taught has no context or immediate use, leading to boredom with maths.
They are becoming knowledgeable, but not knowledge-able.
Even when we ask them to do relatively somewhat engaging activities, it becomes dress rehearsal learning as there is no real purpose to it.
This workshop will focus on 3 aspects:
* Using rich contexts for learning where students can connect their learning to real life experiences.
* How teachers can become more invigorated and excited about their lessons, and passing this enthusiasm on to their students.
* Project Based Learning, completing projects that leave a legacy for others and creating hooks to engage our students.
This workshop will have you and your students wanting to rush into your maths lessons as they will now have a real purpose for learning.
