## Dive Into Curriculum

Where do I access our curriculum and Scope and Sequence?

http://www.irvingisd.net/site/Default.aspx?PageID=1842

Find the scope and sequence and save it to your computer ( If you haven't already)

Access the Teacher overview

- TEKS breakdown ( what is the TEKS asking me to do? )

- Lesson breakdown

- Resources ( links to websites)

- Big ideas

- Important Vocabulary

## Order of Operations... Is it just an order?

When you have a chance read the article below...

With your group discuss how you or your students might solve this problem.

7 + 3 X 5 + 8

## How do we approach Standard Algorithm when coming from Partial Products?

Discuss with your table using the following sentence stem:

" Partial Products can help our students achieve standard algorithm because..."

Definition for Algorithm:

a procedure for solving a mathematical problem (as of finding the greatest common divisor) in a finite number of steps that frequently involves repetition of an operation; *broadly* **:** a step-by-step procedure for solving a problem or accomplishing some end especially by a computer

**Let's think....** If students know the steps for partial products do they know the steps to standard algorithm? How can we help our students become independent thinkers?

## Problem Solving! Creating Independent Thinkers!

Problem solving is like reading. Just as good readers, make text to self connections, text to text connections, and text to world connectionsâ€¦ so do good mathematicians.

Interactive Problem solving ideas:

Brainstorm what kinds of things to create problems about in the next 6 weeks.

- Look at the first week of the 2nd six weeks curriculum.
- Choose one big topic to create a problem over.
- How can we use this problem to create independent thinkers?

## Creating problems

## Talk Moves

Let's reflect on todays training!

Using the sentence stems below discuss with your table how using sentence stems in math can help our students build metacognition:

So you're saying...

Do you agree or disagree? Why?

Explain how you figured....

Can you repeat what you just said?

Would someone like to add on to this discussion?

## What stuck with you today?

Reflect on Padlet below:

I made a connection with....

I am glad we talked about....

Next time could we talk about.....

## 3rd Six Weeks SWAG

## Reflections

What went well this six weeks?

What were your struggles?

What could we do to help you this six weeks?

## 3rd Six Weeks Scope and Sequence

## Lean4ward/ Pacing Calendars

## Stations

How can we use them?

What are the struggles?

Do you have any ideas about stations that might benefit others?
