    Thanks Cathy,

    We New Zealand teachers are very much into PD on Inquiry.

    Please can you send me sites, information etc on the CURIOSITY approach for may math(s) students.

    I have tried what you call RISK as I attempt to understand different student strategies and ‘listen’ to follow their learning process.

    That ah ah moment, bright eyes of that surprise ans understanding what THEY have learned for themselves is just so wonderful.
    I enjoy learning together. Curiosity for us all.

    Sincerely,

    Linda Wiseman (Gisborne Girls High School -NO TRACKING yeah!)

    What can I say Cathy?! I have known you for so many years and was so intrigued by your math journey since the age of 10! Your passion continues to motivate the teachers and students around you …even the retired ones like myself! ha
    And your new ideas about the writing of proof…mentor text! Outstanding!!! Thinking Like Mathematicians!
