Scaffolding Mathematical Reasoning for Junior Secondary


Discover a simple and logical method for teaching students how to approach mathematical reasoning. Too often, students transition from primary to secondary school without having been taught how to reason mathematically. When asked to complete problems or inquiries that require them to apply reasoning skills, such as "proving", "explaining", "generalising", or "justifying", they don't know what to do. In this presentation, you will learn how to scaffold a meta-cognitive approach to reasoning, that will not only help students to unpack and solve complex reasoning questions, but also communicate their answers appropriately - an essential skill for life beyond the classroom.
