About this learning opportunity

Using vertical non-permanent surfaces, visible random groupings, and great questions, math can be changed from a boring subject to one where we have debate, discussion and disagreement.

At the end of this session, you will learn:

  • how to ask open-ended questions,
  • answer a question with another question, and
  • provide parallel tasks to promote learning to the edges of the classroom.

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
