Feedback form is now closed.
This session features puzzles and problems that engage students in logical thinking, computational thinking, and visualization. The puzzles and problems were used as the basis for a university level course for undergraduate students. During a four month professional development session, teachers in grades K - 12 were introduced to these problems and were then adapted and implemented in their classrooms. Teachers will be sharing their favourite problems and their experiences integrating the puzzles and problems and the principles of problem solving in their respective classrooms. Participants will walk away with resources that they can use in their classrooms.
