News & Updates 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. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Illustrations Kindergarten The purpose of this task is for students to make connections between counting and cardinality and the operations of addition and subtraction. Grade 1 Grade 2 Videos

Log in When you hear a teacher's stories of classroom instruction, you hear the wisdom of practice through those stories. Classroom stories are a valuable repository of practical knowledge. At LessonSketch we believe that those representations of practice may also provide context for developing capacity for instruction. The LessonSketch collections, tools, and online community are devoted to the creation, examination, and discussion of stories of instructional practice.

Tools Bill, My wife and I are currently assisting the Amphitheater School District with the training of their teachers from grade K to 6 on the Common Core Standards. We would love to have links in our PowerPoint presentations and PDF files (both of which we give to the teachers attending our classes) that went directly to a portion of the text or an illustration that we would like to provide as part of our lesson. For example, teachers have a hard time understanding the division of a fraction by a fraction. The 6.NS Traffic Jam illustration provides an excellent means of giving teachers some intuition about the division of fractions. The problem is that I see no way to link to this illustration directly, or any text with the illustrations. Robert Springer

Games Summary Games of chance hold an honored place in probability theory, because of their conceptual clarity and because of their fundamental influence on the early development of the subject. In this chapter, we explore some of the most common and basic games of chance. Roulette, craps, and Keno are casino games. The Monty Hall problem is based on a TV game show, and has become famous because of the controversy that it generated. Lotteries are now basic ways that governments and other institutions raise money. Basic Topics Red and Black Applets Related Topics For several of the models in this chapter, the gambler either wins or loses, independently from game to game, and with the same probability.
