With ‘fake news’, scams, and creative editing, being able to think critically about numbers and data is more important than ever. How do we help our students to see through the hyperbole and better understand the world around them? Students are more likely to become engaged and successful problem solvers when they are given a sequence of challenges in which (initially) only one or two dimensions of the problem are varied at a time. By raising the bar incrementally, and giving students continuous feedback, teachers can help students learn to persevere so they can tackle more complex problems independently. In this session, participants will practice breaking challenges into manageable increments and will leave with effective problem-solving strategies that they can immediately use in their classroom.
