Introduction to a Thinking Classroom

We know that problem solving is an effective way for students to learn to think mathematically and to develop understanding of the mathematics they are learning. However, the infusion of problem-based learning into the mathematics curriculum does not help with the transformations we want to see in our classrooms. What we need are a set of practices that, along with good problems, can build a thinking classroom. Through modelling and deep engagement, we will unpack the basics of the Building Thinking Classrooms framework. This session is for teachers new to the Thinking Classroom framework.
