  • Learn instructional techniques that promote the TEKS Mathematical Processes, students' higher-order thinking skills and mathematical communication
  • Use Exemplars rubrics and anchor papers to assess student work
  • Review problem-solving tasks that enrich learning opportunities and supplement district-adopted math programs
  • Make the link from assessment to instruction to improve teaching and learning
  • Define the language of assessment, mathematics, problem solving, Depth of Knowledge, Universal Design as well as types of portfolios
  • Understand the fundamentals of problem solving and strategies for implementation
  • Use differentiated problems to personalize instruction to meet individual student's needs

Here's What People Are Saying

If you are a student at our school, you will have heard the term, Exemplars. Exemplars are extended tasks in which 6th graders work in cooperative groups to plan strategies and find solutions. Initially, students are presented with a particular mathematical situation and asked to brainstorm individual strategies for 'attacking' such a problem.
