Through the lens of problem solving, learn how to measure K–5 student performance against the Common Core. Discover strategies for promoting mathematical communication, reasoning and higher-order thinking as well as how to improve teaching and learning opportunities for K–5 students.

This session focuses on:

  • Engaging instructional tools to effectively implement the CCSS.
  • Underlying concepts and processes behind this teaching/learning approach.
  • Essentials of performance-based assessment and instruction to support the CCSS for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice.

Exemplars K–5 math tasks, rubrics and anchor papers are incorporated throughout this introductory workshop. The vocabulary for problem solving is defined and problem-solving strategies are explored. Mathematical communication and application of mathematical concepts across math strands will be shown. Discussion topics also include: differentiating instruction, encouraging student involvement and developing a student's ability to assess his/her own work to improve performance.

Here's What People Are Saying

Exemplars math problems and rubrics have been available to Amphitheater teachers since 1998. The materials were distributed through our District Math Team. Each school received information and explanations from their site leader. Classes covering the use of problems and the rubrics were also included in the district professional development program. In addition, the District Math Specialist provided in-service to individual schools.
