  • Assess student work samples aligned to the Common Core Content Standards and the Mathematical Practices.

  • Analyze assessment data from the sample tasks to inform instruction.
  • Use student errors in mathematical reasoning and proof as a teaching tool.
  • Share strategies to help student's develop formal mathematical communication.
  • Learn how to integrate mathematical representations into problem solving.
  • Utilize critical-thinking and inquiry to promote mathematical connections.
