Storytelling and Mathematics

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Mathematics teachers are usually consumed with teaching algorithms. Algorithms, however, are based on axioms and those can vary depending on the theory of mathematics. Storytelling in mathematics permits students to explore deductive reasoning.

In this session, you'll have the oportunity to explore deductive reasoning, modeling, and axiomatic systems through the use of storytelling. The explorations will be conducted with Project Zero thinking routines, Socratic Seminars on primary sources, and inquiry-based learning. We'll also explore exemplar work from previous students already published on iTunes Store.

BYOD: If you have a laptop, iPad or tablet, plan to bring it with you to this session.
