It Started with the French Garden Problem: Teachers Modeling Inquiry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the goals of the math classroom today is to create innovative, creative thinkers with resilience and grit. A major question for math teachers is how to do this and an answer to that question is to model perseverance and curiosity in all that we do. But how do we do that with the material that we teach? We already know the answers and the methods, so how can we create for ourselves an ongoing community of inquiry and investigation with each other that we can share with our students. Come hear the story of the ways in which I have found inquiry through my own PLC and how I shared it with my own students in a project this spring. Wonderful eBook inquiry projects from students will be shared.
