Speed Meeting

Share your Math Practice Lesson with your fellow Colleagues

Speed Meeting and Learning

This is an opportunity to individually discuss a math lesson you developed and implemented entailing one or more of the eight mathematical practices. You will share various aspects of your lesson with a fellow colleague in a short amount of time.

Speed Meeting and Learning Protocol

Your goal is to have a conversation with the person sitting across the table from you in 3 minutes. Your conversation should include responses from as many of the questions from the bulleted list. At the signal, the person sitting in the inner path will rotate to his/her right to a new partner. The list of questions are:


  • What criteria did you use to decide which math practice to use?
  • How might you summarize your students' thinking?
  • What was your takeaway from your math lesson?
  • What, if any, challenges did you encounter with this math lesson? How did you resolve them?
  • What have you learned from this process from planning to teaching using the math practices?
  • How did your lesson implementation compare to how you planned it?
  • As a result of this process, what have you learned about yourself as a teacher of mathematics?
  • What evidence do you have as a teacher that the math practice(s) was/were accomplished?

Day 1 Assignment Reminder

1.Plan a tier 1 lesson that incorporates the use of the Mathematical Practices. (Remember, not all of the Practices can be used in all lessons.)


2.Teach the lesson before day 2 of the DI workshop scheduled for February 2, 2016.


3. Identify which Math Practice(s) has/have been incorporated using the planning tool and bring both the planning tool and lesson plan to the Feb. workshop.
