Supporting Problem Based Instruction
Developing expertise in a Problem Centered Classroom brings together the expertise of mathematics education leaders such as John Van de Walle, Mary K. Stein, and Phil Daro to discover and examine the teaching and learning benefits of focusing on a central challenging problem or set of problems within a classroom lesson. Problem based lessons must be taught in a risk-taking supportive environment which challenges students to apply their mathematical understandings in a variety of situations. - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com
