Model with Mathematics
Teachers have been using the word "Model" related to mathematics education for many years. But what is the meaning of "Model with Mathematics" in the Standards for Mathematical Practice? This training looks at different continuum and asks participants to deepen their understanding of modeling by categorizing tasks along different criteria. Prepare to dive into the mathematics!
Wiring the Standards
Mathematics is known for the coherence of the subject, the connections that can be drawn between the material both within grade levels as well as across grade levels. This module asks participants to look deeply at a particular standard and the tasks that illustrate that standard. Then participants are asked to think about content that leads into this topic as well as content that comes from a knowledge of this content. The real learning comes from thinking yourself about these rich connections both across and within grades.
