Sparking interest and engagement in the secondary classroom


This session explores ideas for chapter starter activities and lesson learning activities that are designed to engage middle years’ learners. Chapter starters which are intriguing, inspire students to ask questions, are visually stimulating and are linked to the real world have the potential to create meaning around why we study maths. Similarly, learning activities that are contextualised and help to develop conceptual understanding are a great way to maintain student engagement. While this session is focused on years 7-10 mathematics, the pedagogy explored is applicable to other year levels
