Elementary: Graham Fletcher

Harnessing the Power of Modeling Tasks through the Lens of a Math Progression

Why do we choose one task over another? There are many factors that teachers must take into account before, during, and after a task is taught but what drives our decision- making? In this session, we’ll examine how the purposeful use and sequence of modeling tasks can help build our understanding of what students know and how we can advance their thinking along the progression of learning.

Secondary: Robert Kaplinsky

Creating Problem Solvers

Robert will help you understand what real world problem-based lessons are all about and why it is so critical that we use them with our students. This session will focus on hands-on classroom implementation from both the teacher and students’ perspectives. He will also explain Depth of Knowledge as well as using Open Middle problems to build procedural skills and conceptual understanding. Participants will leave with access to hundreds of free problems that are ready for student implementation.
