Deeper Investigations of the Standards: Iowa Core Mathematics Grades 6 8, Day 2 Iowa Department of Education In Partnership with AEA School Improvement Welcome from your feedback last time Things you never hear about Reading and

Writing.. OMJ Iowa Core Mathematics Journal Think About Our Last Session What have we done so far? First Turn, Last Turn

Read your journal entries from the last meeting One person in the group reads one big idea from his/her journal In round-robin fashion, everyone can comment on that idea, with the originator having the last turn Repeat around the table OMJ

Learning Goals for Deeper Investigations Professional Development Understand that the structures of the Iowa Core Mathematics are meant to support focus and coherence Understand that fluency, deep understanding, application and dual intensity support rigor Understand how to investigate the Iowa Core Mathematics

Success Criteria OMJ 1. I can describe 6 of the standards for mathematical practice. 2. I can connect the critical areas for my grade level to the specific standards at my grade level. 3. I can explain the big ideas of content within the domains/conceptual categories at my grade level. 4. I can describe mathematical understanding by explaining how teacher questioning supports it.

5. I can describe how Iowa Core Mathematics provides a structure to change teaching and learning. Recall your personal learning goals written in your journal Supporting Rich Mathematical Tasks Intent of the standards A curriculum is more

than a collection of activities: It must be coherent, focused on important mathematics and well articulated across the grades. Dilemma A Task

Is it a Rich Mathematical Task? Rich mathematical tasks: Emphasize connections across mathematical content areas, to other disciplines, and especially to the real world Are accessible yet challenging to all Can be solved in several ways Encourage student engagement and communication Encourage the use of connected multiple representations Encourage the appropriate use of intellectual, physical, and technological tools

Not all tasks are created equal, and different tasks will provoke different levels and kinds of student thinking. Stein, Smith, Henningsen, & Silver, 2000 Where does this fit within a unit? By teaching through rich mathematical tasks, students develop deep conceptual understanding and skill proficiency. Why is it important to let students work on a math task without first showing them how to solve it?

http://ifl.lrdc.pitt.edu/ifl/index.php/resource s/ask_the_educator/ido_jamar/ How does the task connect with the Standards for Mathematical Practice? Standards for Mathematical Practice 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in 2. 3. 4. 5.

6. 7. 8. solving them Reason abstractly and quantitatively Construct viable arguments & critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics Use appropriate tools strategically Attend to precision Look for and make use of structure

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning 2011 Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA) 7 School Improvement Services Permission is granted to the Iowa State Department of Education for dissemination and use in any whole or part in any form within the state of Iowa region. 17 Think-Pair-Share At your table, half of people will read Mathematical Practice 6, the other

people will read Mathematical Practice 7 1. Those reading the same Practice will discuss the big ideas from the reading 2. Those reading the same Practice will

discuss connections to the problem 3. The whole table will share their 18 findings How can you scaffold understanding with questions? After having engaged in the task, write questions to use Before, During and After students engage in the task. In practice, students actual opportunities for learning

depend, to a considerable degree, on the kind of discourse that the teacher orchestrates. The nature of the activity and talk in the classroom shapes each students opportunities to learn about particular topics as well as to develop her or his abilities to reason and communicate about those topics. -Henningsen & Stein, 1997 An Example http://www.pd360.c om/index.cfm?Conte ntId=6114

Give us feedback about your learning 3 Things you learned today 2 Things you will use

1 Question you still have What are the actions I need to take to improve my implementation of the Iowa Core? Are there things you need to learn? Are there things you need to ask for others to be a part

of? Are there resources you need to find? 47 Feedback Survey http://survey.a ea.k12.ia.us/f/ 94656/ac2a/ See you soon
