Just returning from the NAEYC annual conference in Orlando, my head is swimming with ideas–ideas that both extend and challenge my previous beliefs. I love that hopeful and refreshed feeling of returning to my classroom after an amazing conference feeling ready to take on the world!
I want to share an abbreviated version of my presentation, “Mathematics is Storytelling: Bringing Play and a Sense of Narrative to Problem Solving” with you all. And while the slides only tell part of the story, I hope they give you a sense of all that is possible when you build a culture of problem solving and live a rich mathematical life alongside your students.
So, how are you bringing play and a sense of narrative to problem solving in your classroom?
