Our early primary classrooms are diverse spaces and our students demonstrate a range of mathematical capacity. How can we inspire deep thinking in our youngest learners? What kinds of questions promote mathematical competence, develop strategic fluency and support conceptual development? In this session for kindergarten through grade 3, we will explore rich open-ended tasks and explorations designed to engage and inspire all learners in our primary classrooms. Come prepared to play!
K-2 & 3-5
