Limited Capacity full

In this student-led interactive workshop we will explore strategies to unlock everyone’s inner math person. 10th grade students at HTHMA have been exploring trigonometry through a discussion-based series of open-ended problems. In this session, they will lead a workshop to demonstrate how collaborative, discussion-based problem solving can lead to a deeper understanding of complex mathematical concepts. Participants will leave with valuable insights from the student facilitators as well as concrete tools for facilitating positive group work and whole class discussions. This would be a valuable session for mathematics educators, but also any adults that believe they are not math-people!
