Title:

Robotics and Numeracy in the Intermediate Classroom

 

Inquiry Question:

How can the use of robotics kits support mathematical RDSB Photoprocesses through open ended problem solving learning opportunities?

Project Description:

Teachers will collaborate to create activities, assessments, and lesson plans that specifically model the use of robotics kits for the implementation of mathematical process skills such as: problem solving, reflecting, and communication.

During this project, teachers will be using robotics kits to:

  • Facilitate learning opportunities for students to develop, select, apply and compare a variety of strategies to solve problems
  • Provide a variety of opportunities in which students might communicate mathematical thinking orally, visually and in writing
  • Provide opportunities to reflect and monitor their thinking
  • Provide instruction on basic coding skills

LC NNDSBAlignment with Board Improvement Plan for Student Achievement and Well-Being

This project aligns with the strategic directions of Rainbow Schools through the following:

  • Use technology to enable students to demonstrate their learning will building 21st century skills.
  • Engage students in rich discussions, collaborative inquiry and the use of manipulatives to build mathematical understanding
