Maths Investigations - for the Primary Years

Recorded on Tuesday 29 August 2023

Dr John West, University of Adelaide

In this webinar, we present scaffolded Maths Investigations, as an approach to learning which encourages students to apply their knowledge and understanding of mathematics to real-world and authentic situations. We will showcase some of the key skills used in maths investigations and provide ideas for the classroom relating to visualising, logical reasoning, conjecturing, working systematically, looking for patterns, and trial and improvement.

Teachers will walk away with rich and authentic ideas for relevant classroom activities and strategies for guiding students through an investigative process to solve challenges with maths.
