Mrs. McCance-who presented at the NCTM conference in late October. The conference was held in Arizona and presenters were chosen from all areas of the United States.

 

The focus of this session was to show how using tasks to meet Common Core standards in Algebra 1, students will begin to develop a deeper understanding of major algebraic concepts and have a higher level of retention of skills.  

 

Goals

  • Demonstrate how students will begin to talk mathematically.
  • Demonstrate how tasks can develop a deeper meaning and understanding of the concepts.
        
  • Discuss how this approach can be differentiated to meet the needs of all students.
  • Discuss how this approach can save teachers more time and allow students time to master the skills.
  • Demonstrate how the use of Journals and Rubrics for scoring allows for assessing the “big picture”
