Hannah Oldham: Make Problem Based Learning Work for You
2015 Georgia Teachers of Mathematics Conference
In the classroom we feel the pressure of time.  While we may want to bring in problem based learning into our classrooms, the concerns of time, application, and implementation is always a consideration.   Through this session, effective strategies and real examples of effective implementation of problem based learning strategies and assessments will be presented.  Session attendees will receive actual lessons and rubrics that can be implemented immediately in the classroom.
