Problem Solving That Promotes Students' Mathematical Thinking: Performance Tasks, Rubrics and Anchor Papers, 6–8

  • Cost: $225
  • Date: November 11, 2017
  • Time: 8:00 to 3:30
  • Presenter: TBD
  • Location: P.S. 206K, 2200 Gravesend Neck Road, Brooklyn, NY 11229

Through the lens of problem solving and mathematical modeling, investigate how to measure student performance in the middle grades against the Common Core. Explore strategies for promoting mathematical communication, reasoning and higher-order thinking as well as how to improve teaching and learning opportunities with middle-grades students.

This session focuses on:

  • Engaging instructional tools.
  • Underlying concepts and processes behind a teaching/learning approach centered on the Mathematical Practices and mathematical modeling.
  • Essentials of performance-based assessment, inquiry and instruction to support the Mathematical Practices and mathematical modeling.

Exemplars 6–8 math tasks, rubrics and anchor papers are incorporated throughout the workshop. Relevant mathematical language connected to problem solving and problem-solving strategies are explored. Mathematical communication and application of mathematical concepts across math strands will be investigated. Discussion topics also include: differentiating instruction, encouraging student involvement and developing a student's ability to assess his/her own work and the work of others to improve performance.

Here's What People Are Saying

Exemplars tasks have proven to be engaging for our Title I students. Use of the student-scoring rubric helps students understand exactly what is expected of them as they solve problems. This knowledge carries over to other mathematics tasks.
