Mathematics -    THE POSITIVE ENGAGEMENT PROJECT Concept Learning Bricks are foundational vocabulary terms and concepts, designed for multi-sensory learners, that students need to master before they can apply the actual concepts to other areas. Each Concept Learning Brick is organized with a question, answer, physical gesture movement, concept examples, and picture to represent the academic term. The image on the card, associated memory gesture, and vocabulary definition allow students to see, hear, say, and do so much more with these crucial terms in a way that is fun and engaging. Over 220 concepts are available! Acing Math (One Deck At A Time!) is a collection of math games ranging from Kindergarten to the upper elementary grades, using only an ordinary deck of playing cards.

MAP Assessment Tasks (Draft) Read more about the purpose of MAP summative assessment… A set of short tasks for grade 7. Mathematical Content This task asks students to select and apply mathematical content from across the grades, including the content standards: 7.RP Ratios and Proportional Relationships Note: These references are provisional: we are still developing our critera for consistently linking individual tasks to the CCSS. Why do people hate maths? “I don’t get it”, “it’s too hard”, “they put me in maths 6 so they make us feel dumb”, “it’s boring”, “there are so many symbols; it’s confusing”, “it’s hard”. These were some of the responses my students of 9M6 gave me to the question “why is it that you don’t like maths?”. My aim this year is to inspire these kids; to have students excited to come to class and learning maths. It may be a tough assignment, but I have confidence that we can get there.

Performance-Based Assessments in Mathematics - The Grapevine Network Ten schools in our Network were involved in the Elementary School Performance-Based Assessment Pilot in Mathematics during the 2010-2011 school year with the Center for Assessment and Exemplars, Inc. Participants constructed resources centered on performance assessments and tasks aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics during this year-long pilot. Below you will find both general and grade-specific resources which can be used by all, regardless of whether you participated in the pilot. If your school is new to this work and you would like to try the tasks out with your students please read the Introduction to Standards-Based Assessment and Instruction, attached below. After reading this introduction you will be able to try out the tasks which are located in the folders below, by grade.
