Please note: The Problematized Situations Course is still in preparation, but it will be made available as soon as possible.

During problematized situations, the focus is on the mathematical thinking that is used rather than on right answers. As students grapple with a problem, teachers can observe:

  • how students enter into the problem,
  • what maths they choose to use,
  • misconceptions and common error patterns,
  • strengths and nudge points.

Student interviews can be carried out, annotations of work samples can be made and feedback can be given. From close observations, teachers can make informed decisions about what next.

This course supports the teaching of the ACM for all topics in the Primary Years.
