Yummy Math A Primer on Curriculum-Sharing Sites When I was teaching, the single greatest way for me to prepare was to have conversations with my colleagues who had taught the concepts before. For one, this helped all of us develop a common discourse, which was inevitably clearer once we were working through our thoughts in trying to explain ideas to each other. Second, chatting informally helped me to develop a conversational tone, and to speak extemporaneously with the class, which ultimately helped to convey my passion for the subject matter, which is what brought my colleagues and I together in the first place. In addition, the most effective assignments that I used were based on ideas or resources that other teachers had shared with me. Teacher collaboration not only saves time, and makes work easier, it improves the quality of curriculum. The second domain consists of sites that produce and share free curriculum materials, in a more traditional broadcast model. Curriculum Sharing Networks Curriculum Sharing Broadcast Sites

Three Acts Of A Mathematical Story 2016 Aug 6. Here is video of this task structure implemented with elementary students. 2013 May 14. Here’s a brief series on how to teach with three-act math tasks. 2013 Apr 12. Storytelling gives us a framework for certain mathematical tasks that is both prescriptive enough to be useful and flexible enough to be usable. Act One Introduce the central conflict of your story/task clearly, visually, viscerally, using as few words as possible. With Jaws your first act looks something like this: The visual is clear. With math, your first act looks something like this: The visual is clear. Leave no one out of your first act. Act Two The protagonist/student overcomes obstacles, looks for resources, and develops new tools. Before he resolves his largest conflict, Luke Skywalker resolves a lot of smaller ones — find a pilot, find a ship, find the princess, get the Death Star plans back to the Rebellion, etc. So it is with your second act. What tools do they have already? Act Three Conclusion Related - National Science Digital Library Assessment Rubrics Math Standards-Based Math Rubric The Exemplars Standards-Based Math Rubric was updated in 2014 to reflect more current standards. It supports NCTM Process Standards and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice. "Classic" 5-Level Math Rubric The Exemplars Classic 5-Level Math Rubric was developed to reflect the revised NCTM standards. "Classic" 3-Level Math Rubric The Classic 3-Level Math Rubric was used from 1993 to 2001 to assess student performance. Pre K-K Rubric Exemplars Pre K-K Rubric was developed to assess younger students' performance. Functions + Algebra Concepts Rubric This rubric focuses on content. Science Science Rubric The Exemplars Science Rubric is based on the following science standards: National Research Council and the American Association for the Advancement of Science and New Standards. K-2 Science Continuum This continuum was developed by an Exemplars workshop leader and task writer, Tracy Lavallee. English Language Arts Responding to Text Rubric
