What makes a mathematical task rich?

Summary

Some mathematical tasks are richer than others. They inspire student curiosity, provide a balance of productive struggle and success, and enable students to have ownership of their learning. These are tasks that are accessible to all students and leave them hungry for more.

How can you easily identify what these tasks are? How do they fit into a balanced mathematics program? And how can you run them to ensure success for your students?

This session will include a mix of theory, pedagogical considerations as well as practical strategies for getting rich tasks up and running and sustaining them in your classroom.
