Embracing the Struggle: In the Learner's Seat with an All-New Challenge

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Participants were so engaged in exploring the Mad Veterinarian problem last year that we are bringing this session back with an all new challenge! Join in this exciting opportunity to take off your teacher hat and experience problem-solving from the learner’s seat. Sharpen your problem-solving skills by exploring a highly engaging math problem that will push your mathematical limits. Patterns and functions are the basic building-blocks of this deep, rich problem, but the true solution lies in engaging students in high-level, intriguing mathematical exploration.
