Good Questions: Differentiated Tasks for Building Mathematical Competence

Our classrooms are diverse spaces and our students demonstrate a range of mathematical capacity. How can we inspire deep thinking in all of our learners? 

What kinds of questions promote mathematical competence, develop strategic fluency and support conceptual development?  In this session for grades 4 to 8, we will explore rich open-ended tasks and explorations designed to engage all learners in our intermediate and middle school classrooms.  Come prepared to play!
