Module 1: Developing a Task Culture

Tasks play an important role in math and science lessons and should not merely be a part of the routine curriculum. It is the aim of this module to create and apply mathematical tasks that

  • enable students to find different ways of solving problems.
  • systematically revise existing knowledge of the student and supplement it with new material.
  • inspire the setting of new tasks.
