Breakout Session 2: Friday, October 23 - 1:15 - 2:30pm
Dr. Rachel R. McAnallen - 'Creative Mathematics Is Not an Oxymoron within the Core Curriculum'
Arithmetic could be defined as answering the question whereas mathematics could be defined as questioning the answer. Mathematics can be highly creative in its own right when taught through a conceptual base rather than a procedural one. Teaching through a conceptual base fosters creativity in the student and excitement in the classroom.
