When you think about math teaching you think about math problems (or “tasks").  But, there’s actually quite a bit of variety in mathematical tasks and that variety has a big impact on what students learn.  In this session we will break down different types of mathematical tasks to investigate whether they offer opportunities for students to develop conceptual understanding. You will leave with a tool for assessing mathematical tasks and a list of resources containing rich mathematical tasks.
