This extended short course covers an in-depth study of the research, theory and evidence-based practices associated with mathematical inquiry aimed at raising student achievement. Participants will analytically investigate how mathematical inquiry learning communities are constructed and how they support all learners to engage in mathematics at a high level of achievement.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Teachers and school leadership.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Six 1.5 hour contact sessions over a year (in a school local to you where possible with sufficient enrolments) and/or on-line readings and activities which cover:
The course 'DMIC Short Course #1' will build on the Best Evidence Synthesis Exemplar 1, which promotes best practice in teaching mathematics. A key goal will be to investigate how teachers can engage students in mathematical inquiry to raise their achievement. Online readings and activities will cover:
* Communication and participation in the mathematics inquiry classroom
* Grouping arrangements and student perspectives
* Planning for learning: Tools, tasks and representations
COURSE DATES, DURATION, AND LOCATION?
This course is delivered in six contact sessions over a year. The duration of each session is one and a half hours. The course commences in late February, and will finish in Term 3.
