Communication, problem-solvings and interpersonal skills are the newest "must-haves" of the global marketplace. How can we, as math teachers, develop these soft skills in our students?

In this session, you'll explore an innovative problem-solving model centered on the four tenets of curiosity, context, communication, and collaboration. We'll share how we transformed dry, dusty textbook examples into off-the-page, real-life experiences that will grab students' attention, foster creative thinking, and develop mathematical understandings, creating ways ways for students to connect math to their personal life experiences. Instead of delivering prescribed procedures, which too often stifle creativity and collaboration, we'll examine how to facilitate authentic discovery and ensure that error analysis will become a natural routine for students.

You'll leave this session equipped with tools to develop innovative thinkers who can confidently answer any "Help Wanted" ad!
