Participants will learn about promoting and supporting productive struggle in a math classroom. We will discuss how to select rich math tasks that engage students in deeper mathematical reasoning. Participants will experience “thinking classroom” norms and expectations that promote student agency through productive struggle.
Principles to Action, NTCM Support Productive Struggle in Learning Mathematics “Effective teaching of mathematics consistently provides students, individually and collectively, with opportunities and supports to engage in productive struggle as they grapple with mathematical ideas and relationships. “Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, Peter Liljedhal
How do teachers foster student ability to become active problem solvers and persevere when they don’t know what to do? In our session, participants will learn about how to promote and support productive struggle in a math classroom. We will engage participants in a rich math task and discuss how to select such tasks that engage students in deeper mathematical reasoning. To challenge traditional math classroom norms, we will experience “thinking classroom” procedures and expectations that promote student agency through productive struggle.
