Jo Boaler”s book “Mathematical Mindsets” has become a pioneering resource in inquiry based differentiated Mathematics courses worldwide. Open Ended Tasks are activities that have a clear learning outcome that can be differentiated in scope for multiple ability students. In this session, a variety of activities related to number theory, geometry, statistics and mathematical modelling will be shared and participants will have the opportunity to practice designing open ended tasks that link to relevant programmes such as IB DP, MYP and IGCSE.

This session is aimed at teachers of Middle School and High School Mathematics programmes who are looking for robust activities related to their courses of study and assessment criteria but enable flexibility in implementation. In particular, participants will leave with:
1. A collection of Low Floor High Ceiling tasks that they can use in their classrooms which have been investigated within the AGIS group.
2. Experience in designing Low Floor High Ceiling tasks they can use in their individual classes.
