Search Looking Back and Moving Forward Pre-K-2, 3-5, 9-12 This final lesson of the unit reviews the work of the previous lessons through a variety of activity stations, one of which involves using an interactive graphing tool. Students model with buttons and record addition and subtraction. Counting Embedded Figures Standards for Mathematical Practice "Does this make sense?" Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt.

STEM Gives Meaning to Mathematics - National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Understanding involves making connections” (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] 2000, p. 64). Challenging students with important mathematics prepares them to solve problems in class and at home. NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000) outlines five Process Standards that are essential for developing deep understanding of mathematics: 1. Problem Solving 2.

Model Curriculum: Mathematics (K-12) Mathematics (K-12) REVISED Model Curriculum – June 2014 The model curriculum is intended as a tool to support districts in their own curricular planning. During its development, teams of educators used all available information about the Common Core State Standards and PARCC to appropriately organize and sequence the standards across five units. Since the model curriculum's original development, PARCC has released the Evidence Tables for grades 3 through Algebra II ( The evidence tables indicate which evidence statements and standards will be assessed on the Performance Based Assessment (PBA) occurring at approximately 75% of the school year and which will be tested on the End of Year (EOY) assessment. In response to this release, the model curriculum underwent a revision to ensure that standards occurring on the PBA were addressed in the first four units of the curriculum.

Brain Teasers Sliding Triangle The triangle at left lies on a flat surface and is pushed at the top vertex. The length of the congruent sides does not change, but the angle between the two congruent sides will increase, and the base will stretch. Initially, the area of the triangle will increase, but eventually the area will decrease, continuing until the triangle collapses. QR Code Quest Scavenger Hunt- Part Deux! I updated & improved my QR Code Quest Scavenger Hunt lesson I previously blogged about this year & used it again with my AWEsome ESOL kids & 6th graders. I wanted to share those changes with you because it seems as if you like QR codes! Of my top 5 most viewed blog posts 3 have to do with QR codes (and yes, you know I'm barmy for 'em!) In fact, the first posting about this lesson has had, as of today, 17+K hits! WOWIE! Improved worksheet and graphic clues!

Math Vocabulary List by Grade Level Hi everyone, I was poking around and found a couple of great resources for Math Vocabulary by Grade level. The first one is a PDF I was sent sometime ago. Unfortunately, I don't know who to credit. The second one is from Salem-Keizer and this site has a great Math Vocabulary page with definitions! Examples of Formative Assessment When incorporated into classroom practice, the formative assessment process provides information needed to adjust teaching and learning while they are still happening. The process serves as practice for the student and a check for understanding during the learning process. The formative assessment process guides teachers in making decisions about future instruction. Here are a few examples that may be used in the classroom during the formative assessment process to collect evidence of student learning. Observations Questioning
