Challenge based learning (CBL) moves teaching away from the traditional pedagogy that academic content is a body of precepts, which need to be memorized, and into a deeper understanding--one which gives students more control in situations that involve quantitative and spatial reasoning.
Geometry students were challenged to analyze the Hong Kong Cage home phenomena through a multi-disciplinary and mathematical exploration. The challenge gave students the opportunity to see how using the power of mathematics within a socio-economic context to assess, synthesize, and interpret information can improve the world around them.

This workshop leads to a dissemination on how students engaged in a global education perspective can understand how specific academic skills can be applied to the global market place.
The workshop includes take-away student exemplars and teacher templates.
Target Audience
Suitable for all teachers, this workshop will be of particular interest to those considering shifting the educational paradigm.Lesson templates and student examples are from the middle to high school level mathematics classes, but are adaptable to fit the needs of students across all grade levels and academic subjects.

In this workshop participants will:
1. Learn and discuss how CBL emphasizes the student's ability to access, interpret and synthesize information.
2. Develop Big Ideas to initiate a CBL project and learn how to overcome the challenges.
3. Explore and learn to use Google apps that support and assess CBL projects.
