Math Problem Solving: Building Real Understanding



Give Aboriginal students the tools to become problem solvers! In this workshop you will learn a variety of effective methods, including the Bar Model method, which helps develop in students a deeper understanding of fundamental concepts in mathematics and develop their abilities in problem solving and mathematical thinking. By introducing new and exciting ways to teach mathematics and promoting role models, the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) is making a significant difference in the way students view science and technology and their own mathematical abilities.
