Agenda: Embolden Your Inner Mathematician (09.05.18) Week 1

Week One of Embolden Your Inner Mathematician

Teacher-learner-leaders will engage in a semester-long professional learning journey to deepen our understanding of NCTM’s Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices.

We commit to curation of best practices, connections between mathematical ideas, and communication to learn and share with a broad audience.

Course Goals:
At the end of the semester, teacher-learners should be able to say:

  • I can work within NCTM’s Eight Mathematical Teaching Practices for strengthening the teaching and learning of mathematics.
  • I can exercise mathematical flexibility to show what I know in more than one way.
  • I can make sense of tasks and persevere in solving them.

Today’s Goals

At the end of this session, teacher-learners should be able to say:

  • I can implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem-solving. (#NCTMP2A)
  • I can make sense of tasks and persevere in solving them. (#SMP-1)

From Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All

Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem-solving: Effective teaching of mathematics engages students in solving and discussing tasks that promote mathematical reasoning and problem solving and allow multiple entry points and varied solution strategies.

Learning Progressions for today’s goals:

  • I can implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem-solving. (#NCTMP2A)
  • I can make sense of tasks and persevere in solving them. (#SMP-1)
