Description:    Math education has traditionally been rooted in text-book driven, teacher-centric padogogy in which the goal is to master an algorithm and find the correct answer. Teaching through Problem Solving (TtPS) shifts to task-based instruction that focuses on mathematical reasoning and allows students to explore the many different pathways to a solution. During this workshop, participants will define TtPS, analyze the need for and the benefits of this instructional shift, experience  a TtPS lesson, explore resources to support TtPS, and plan a TtPS lesson for their students. Participants are asking to bring a device (laptop/chromebook/tablet) and their classroom materials for the upcoming unit of instruction.
