Motivating and Engaging Middle Secondary Learners


Ask the majority of Year 9 and 10 students what they think of maths and what answers do you expect to get? It’s boring. Why are we doing this? I don’t get it. Textbook, textbook, textbook. In this session we will explore a number of ways of reengaging and motivating students across the mathematics curriculum and bring back the joy of mathematical exploration we often lose in secondary school. We utilise and consider the impact differentiated hands on activities, rich learning, growth mindset, enhancing student voice and making connections to the wider world. We will explore how to refocus the most disengaged mathematics students through varied instruction allowing all students experience success.
