  • Founders Room (upstairs), Emmanuel Centre, Emmanuel College Warrnambool 37 Ardlie Street Warrnambool, VIC, 3280 Australia (map)

This workshop will show how you can apply a contextual approach to mathematics concepts to engage students by linking what they are learning in class to their own lives and future careers.

Have you ever heard a student ask that age old question 'Why do we have to learn this?' in their mathematics class?

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Years 7 - 10 mathematics teachers, curriculum leaders, support staff and anyone else who is interested in contextual based approaches to teaching maths!

THIS INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP WILL ALLOW YOU TO:

  • discover how you can bring relevant, real world examples to your classroom
  • develop a toolkit of activities and resources for applying real life context in maths classes
  • practice bringing a real world context to your maths classes to engage students in what they are learning.

YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IF YOU ARE:

  • curious about how a contextual approach to teaching and learning can develop critical and creative thinking skills
  • looking for clarity about how to best apply relevant, real world context to maths lessons
