Lecture of Dr. Ardyth Foster, Assistant Professor, Childhood & Exceptional Student Education, Armstrong Atlantic State University, Savannah, Georgia, USA:

"Problem Solving Across the Curriculum", with an emphasis on technology.

ABSTRACT: HOW CAN MATHEMATICS BE INFUSED ACROSS THE CURRICULUM? There are four overarching themes in mathematics – patterns, measurement, proportional

reasoning, and problem solving – and a deep conceptual understanding of each is vital to the acquisition of complex mathematical ideas and concepts. An ability to effectively use

these themes to establish connections among various mathematical concepts, and between mathematics and the real world, is therefore an important skill for mathematics

teachers to possess. This presentation will focus on problem solving as a means of helping students develop relevant and useful approaches to understanding mathematical

concepts. The various definitions of problem solving will be discussed, as well as effective instructional approaches to problem solving, and the overlap between problem solving

and the other themes. Examples of problem-solving activities that have proved effective in establishing connections among mathematical concepts, as well as connections between

mathematics and other areas of the curriculum and the real world, will be presented. The use of technology to bring these ideas to life is also of major importance, and some of the

technological tools that have been proven useful in helping students develop solid understandings about these concepts will also be presented. 


Work in groups under topic "Visual proofs, its creation and use in teaching mathematics" (moderators R. Hašek, I. Štrausová, M. Vejsada).
