About This Webinar

Together, we will contrast mathematical questions and tasks that focus on simply “doing” mathematics to questions and tasks that evoke mathematical reasoning. It is ALL about the questions.

Questions/tasks at all levels from Kindergarten through Grade 12 will be explored.

For example, we will contrast a question such as:

Read this number: 4023.
to
What numbers take exactly four words to say?

Or a question such as:
Solve: ¾ x – 2 = 5/8 x + 9
to
Do equations with fractions in them usually have whole number solutions or fraction
solutions?
