Learning Tree - Shinglee Professional Development | Bangkok

Anchor Task 2 | Secondary Case Click Here

Seminar for School Leaders - How to Increase Achievement Level and Cultivate Positive Attitude in Mathematics in Your School. During the seminar I did two anchor task demonstrations to illustrate the factors contributing to high achievement and positive attitude. The photographs show using an anchor task from New Syllabus Mathematics 1, a secondary level textbook series that is used by many secondary schools in Singapore (it was first developed in the 1980s and the 2013 Edition is now available for Book 1, 2 and 3 as well as Additional Mathematics). In this anchor task, students were asked to investigate the sum of angles in a polygon of n sides. We saw exploring, structuring, journaling and reflecting using the textbook. We also discussed how guided practice looks like using Worked Example 6.
