"Knowing what to do and why it works is the aim of learning mathematics. Having both procedural and conceptual understanding working together is the goal. How do you develop both, which comes first, and does it matter? "

Meredith has worked as a classroom teacher, PYP Coordinator, IBO workshop leader and site visitor for PYP schools.

 

Her latest role as a Curriculum Coordinator includes challenging and supporting teachers to think more conceptually across all learning areas so they can create authentic opportunities for student inquiry.

Workshop Audience

Classroom teachers, mathematics coordinators, and learning support or special needs teachers are invited
to attend this series of workshops to develop their understanding and knowledge of ways to support
students successfully learning mathematics.

Workshop Goals

 Exploring how students become mathematically empowered learners through opportunities to inquire and develop their knowledge and understanding in mathematics.

Teachers reflect on their own understanding, beliefs, and practices regarding teaching and learning
mathematics.
