Events Details

Process problems require pupils to develop general strategies for understanding, planning, solving problems as well as evaluating possible solutions. Process problems could be presented as word problems.  This course will provide P1 to P3 mathematics teachers with the necessary knowledge and skills for teaching problem solving in the mathematics classroom.  Teachers will identify the factors that contribute to low-progress learners’ difficulties in mathematical problems solving.  Teachers will also be led through the various strategies to help low-progress pupils to solve process problems.  As part of the course, teachers will also adapt and design process problems/tasks to meet varied learning needs and interests as well as evaluate the effectiveness of these.  Problem-solving framework and checklist to help low-progress pupils to solve mathematical problems will also be shared and discussed.
