DMIC: Developing Mathematical Inquiry Communities


Bronwyn Gibbs shares the transformation of her teaching practice using DMIC maths and the impact of this transformation on the way children in her class saw themselves, and others, as mathematicians.

Gibbs is a mathematics mentor with the DMIC team at Massey University. She currently works in a range of diverse schools in Wellington, Napier, East Cape and Christchurch, developing teachers’ mathematics pedagogy. Prior to her mentor role, she was a classroom teacher in Porirua East, teaching from Year 3-8.

This talk was a part of Growing from Strong Foundations in Wellington on 11, June, 2018
