Sara Delano Moore Ph. D. is an expert in mathematics education noted for building conceptual understanding of math to support procedural fluency. Her recent post at ORIGO Education’s blog, discusses problem solving and providing the right challenge at the right time. “What is our learning intention for our students?” she asks. “What sort of problem-solving task best meets this purpose?”
In a four-part series, Ms. Moore provides practical strategies and dissects why those strategies are effective. Read the first post at: https://www.origoeducation.com/blog/using-the-right-problem/ . The article also links to ORIGO insights Resource Hub for downloadable problem-solving tasks.
An edWeb Webinar also delves deeply into the topic including example approaches to the problems in the blog post: https://home.edweb.net/webinar/mathlearners20180117/
