Feedback form is now closed.

Because problem solving can be difficult - even for gifted students - it is important for students to have a "tool-belt" of problem solving strategies. Many of the strategies presented in this session will force students to change their normal thinking patterns and approach each problem in a different way.

You will leave this session with many unique problem-solving techniques that will help all students be more successful in math contests and on tests. Each participant will leave the session with 10 problems they can take back and implement immediately in their classroom that will interest and challenge their students.

Participant Outcomes:

  • Teach students many powerful problem solving techniques
  • Have challenging high interest materials to bring back to the classroom
  • Learn ways to deal with students who fear making mistakes
