If you've wanted your math students to be stronger problem solvers who love learning math but would like tips and examples to help you get started, then this workshop is for you.

We'll begin by exploring why problem solving is so important. Then we'll discuss how it would work with your students. From there we'll focus more on implementation including how to prepare to teach a lesson and what to do if it doesn't go as planned. We'll then address how to use problem solving to build students procedural skills and conceptual understanding. Finally, we'll wrap up the workshop by talking about how to merge these ideas with what you're already doing.
