Objectives:

Mathematical Practices.jpg
Participants will be able to:
  • Describe the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice (SsMP).
  • Identify when you are or a colleague is applying a mathematical practice when problem solving.
  • Identify how to use talk moves as a teaching tool for implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • Discuss how a number talk supports students' mathematical thinking.

Number Talk of the Day

Activity #1:



Number Talk Video Guide
Today, we will watch a fifth grade example of a number talk. Use the recording sheet to take notes during the video.


Beginning the Day with a Math Problem-Do and Discuss Math

Activity #2:


Mathematical Practices

Activity #3

What are the mathematical practices? What do they mean for our teaching?

SsMP #7: Look for and make use of structure.

SsMP #8: Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.



Let's Reflect:
What does the mathematical practice look, sound like in the classroom?
