  1. 1. teaching mathematics<br />focusing on problem solving<br />DrYeap Ban Har<br />Marshall Cavendish Institute<br />Singapore<br />banhar@sg.marshallcavendish.com<br />www.banhar.blogspot.com<br />www.banhar.com<br />Today’s discussion is based on lessons taken from a Singapore textbook series. The goal is to see how mathematics teaching can be made to focus on problem solving and how the lessons can be differentiated for struggling and advanced students.<br />Photographs of the session is available on Facebook<br />
