2018 Identifying and providing for mathematically promising students (Vic Association for Gifted and Talented Children) Live and Online  Tue 23 Oct 2018


Closing date for registrations is : 16/10/2018



Identification and provision for mathematically promising students can be a challenge for all involved, and there is some debate about which should come first – identification or programming. In this hands-on workshop participants will learn the definition of mathematical promise, contemplate the possible goals of mathematical talent development, and explore the multiple tools and approaches available for identification of high mathematical potential. Then a range of different strategies for mathematical talent development will be shared.


Workshop presented live at MAV, at various hubs and online. If you cannot attend any of the listed hubs, you may also participate via the Polycom app (for this option indicate “non-hub”). Please note when registering that you indicate the appropriate venue.

Who should attend: Year 5 to 9
