Real-life problems are a remarkable tool to stretch student thinking and help them develop a deeper understanding of mathematics and its role in everyday life. Solving real-world problems promotes flexibility and encourages students to adjust and grow their thinking. In this session, participants will find practical ways to engage students in critical thinking, develop their independence, and make connections with the world.
