Standards-Based Classroom Modeling:
Problem Solving and Formative Assessment for the Math TEKS

The Classroom Modeling session demonstrates the problem-solving, assessment and communication process across all levels to support the TEKS for Mathematical Processes and Mathematical Content.

Components for this workshop can include:

  • A working portfolio lesson that addresses the request of the classroom teacher(s). The lesson may focus on a particular mathematical content area, standard, strategy, multi-step problem and/or using mathematical language;
  • Questioning students about their thinking in order to generate mathematical connections, communication and reasoning, both verbally and in writing;
  • Demonstrating personalized instruction;
  • Introducing instructional techniques that promote students' understanding and use of the Mathematical Process Standards as well as students' higher-order thinking, reasoning and communication skills;
  • Building student confidence and interest in mathematical problem solving and communication; and/or
  • Utilizing Exemplars open-ended problems to introduce mathematical content, representations, language and connections, and to encourage mathematical discussion.

Our teacher-friendly tasks are designed to support both the Common Core and Citywide instructional expectations. GO Math! alignments are also available.

Here's What People Are Saying

The new Exemplars Problem Solving for Common Core is a welcome addition to the Exemplars' offerings. School districts currently searching for reliable problems to enact the spirit and content of Common Core at each grade will be delighted with this resource ... This can help teachers not only better understand the math of context -- rich problems but should also help them anticipate varied student outcomes for evaluation.
