Learning mathematics through a spirit of inquiry

Summary

Teachers often declare that the most important part of their job is to encourage their students to be mathematically curious. In this session inquiry practice will be examined through the lens of challenging maths tasks that foster curiosity, engagement and understanding. Students need time to use their knowledge and skills by thinking critically, applying knowledge to new situations, analysing information, comprehending new ideas, communicating, collaborating, solving problems, and making decisions. Using challenging tasks, students are encouraged to solve contextualised mathematical problems using their strategies, skills and understandings in collaboration with their peers. In summarising their responses and identifying the mathematical concepts, students’ understanding is developed and deepened.
