A one day course aimed at Junior Certificate Mathematics Teachers who wish to engage with the solving of problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts.

This is a follow up to Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 1 delivered in Kildare Education Centre on Saturday 14 October 2017. However attendance at Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 1 is not a prerequisite for attendance at Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 2.

The Junior Certificate Mathematics Syllabus for examination from 2016 contains a section in each of the five strands entitled “Synthesis and Problem Solving Skills.” One of the learning outcomes in this section states that students should be able to “Apply their Knowledge and Skills to Solve Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts.”

This one day course aims at providing teachers of Junior Certificate Mathematics with a bank of questions which will aid them in achieving this goal.

The questions provided:

Ø  Range across the five strands of the Junior Certificate Syllabus.

Ø  Range across the three years of the Junior Certificate Cycle.

Ø  Allow students engage in tasks for which the solutions are not immediately obvious.

Ø  Are suitable for a wide range of abilities.

Ø  Can be scaffolded to cater for differentiated learning.

Ø  Can be solved by a variety of approaches and methods.

Ø  Link material from a number of strands.

Ø  Can be used to introduce and develop other concepts.

There will be ample opportunity for participants to engage with the material by working through examples and discussing the solutions and there will be full worked solutions to many of the examples.

 A PDF version of the presentation will be made available to all participants via email on completion of the course.
