We begin by looking at some strategies that do and do not help our students get better at solving problems. Then we turn our attention to a set of simple, powerful activity structures that can be used to help develop our students' problem solving capabilities across many different topics. The more we make use of the same activity structure, the less time is spent setting it up, and the more time students spend thinking about, enjoying, and learning mathematics.


  • Identify what does and what does not help our students solve problems in mathematics
  • Develop of a set of problem solving activity structures that can be used across different topics and with students of different ages


This seminar is designed for teachers of students aged 9 to 16.
