About the Session:

As we listen to those we are privileged to serve, our teachers, support staff and Instructional Leaders, we are excited to partner with Marian Small to support you, your students and your learning communities. In response to identified and expressed needs for the following components of Math, please consider the following professional learning opportunity: I am not convinced there is such a thing as a rich task; what makes it rich is what we do with it as follow-up. We will look at many examples of tasks with potential but talk about what we need to do with the tasks to make the most of them in enriching mathematical thinking and performance.


This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
