K12 Math Recap and Review!

What have we done so far?

Our vision for our students:

“Mathematically proficient students blend their knowledge of math content with their ability to apply that knowledge to solve problems, communicate math ideas, justify solutions, model math concepts, and reason to make sense of mathematics”

Goals for Today:

1. Review Practices # 1 & 6

2. See "What Good Looks Like" from your colleagues

3. Going from closed to open ended questions

4. Getting more comfortable with Number Talks

4. Resources & next steps

The other practices are used as tools and strategies that will support students' conceptual understanding and procedural skills.
