Maarit was concerned that many students would rather do almost anything than learn maths. She believed the problem was entirely due to the way mathematics is commonly taught. So she began to develop a new method that teaches mathematics by asking students to collaborate in groups and solve real-life problems. Not only has Maarit co-authored nine mathematics textbooks and several books about maths education, she has been involved in shaping the national curriculum in Finland, and is now one of the top ten finalists of the Global Teacher Prize. Join this master class with Maarit and find out how in the PISA international student assessments and the 9th grade maths tests of the National Board of Education, her school consistently ranks above average in Finland – and Finland tops many PISA studies!
