Puzzles to Support Mathematical Thinking FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This session is now FULL. Please DO NOT add this session to your schedule; ample space is still available in other sessions during this time period. You might enjoy: "Numbers are not isolated incidents" during this time slot, which will share how to use puzzles and other methods to teach number theories.

These incredible and engaging puzzles are an ideal solution to help middle school students move past memorization and skill drills to start thinking mathematically. This carefully-curated series of puzzles are easy to understand, allow multiple strategies for investigation and solution, and offer just enough challenge – and wow factor - to draw students (and teachers) in. Learn to use puzzles to teach mathematical proofs in a meaningful and user-friendly way (no boring, two columns proofs here!), then explore and uncover the amazing things you can do with Grime dice.
