I Got 99 Problems: Teaching Problem Solving in Mathematics Classrooms **IN PERSON** presented by Phil Dituri – 8:30-2:30pm

January 11 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

It is commonly agreed upon that learning to be a good problem solver is an essential aspect of being a good mathematician. To that end, teaching your students to be good problem solvers is at the heart of good mathematics teaching. Unfortunately, problem solving is often left aside in the mathematics classroom. This is frequently due to curricular pressures and a fear of the unstructured nature of problem solving. In this workshop you will explore intriguing problems from various mathematical disciplines as well as several strategies and ideas that will help you teach your students to be successful problem solvers. In addition to solving these problems, we will also explore the group dynamics, routines, and structures needed for facilitating problem solving in your own classroom. **Open to all MS and HS Mathematics Educators** Eligible for 6 hours CTLE credit. Can use 1 consortium seat. If district pays, district approval must be confirmed prior to start of session.
