Seminar 2014-2015

The Project Maths Seminar focused on algebraic reasoning. Teachers were given the opportunity to discuss students’ difficulties when learning algebra and the most productive approaches to teaching key algebra skills. Presentations were given on introducing algebra through relationships and on making connections for understanding when teaching the circle. Read more
