Thinking Vertically
Date: July 27-29, 2015
Location: NCTM Interactive Institute for Grades 9-12, Anaheim, CA
Speaker: Ashli Black
Description: How can thinking vertically help with lesson planning and promote student reasoning and sense making between mathematical ideas? Using the progression of the concept of "rate of change" through the CCSSM into calculus as a focus, participants in this session will complete several classroom-ready tasks that help develop conceptual understanding about rates while making connections between secondary standards. Discussion will focus on strategies and tools to use while lesson planning with vertical thinking in mind.
 
Student Errors, Mistakes, and Wrong Answers, Oh My! - Opportunity: Rethink!
Date: July 27-29, 2015
Location: NCTM Interactive Institute for Grades 9-12, Anaheim, CA
Speaker: Vicki Lyons
Description: Especially when reasoning and problem solving, everyone has gone down ineffective paths as they learn mathematics. But how can we help students overcome their feelings of inadequacy or failure while they are trying to make sense of the important concepts and processes we are trying to teach them? Tasks that require students to build argument and determine contextually sound conclusions will be used to help teachers recognize student errors as opportunities to rethink through flawed results and inefficient arguments. Using errors as opportunities for productive mathematical discourse can help students embrace mistakes as important ways to refine their thinking and persevere to meaningful, accurate understandings.
 
Engage Students with Multiple Connections to Make Sense of Independence
Date: July 27-29, 2015
Location: NCTM Interactive Institute for Grades 9-12, Anaheim, CA
Speaker: Vicki Lyons
Description: This session will focus on tasks embedded in rich contexts that help students understand and be able to use statistical independence and dependence. These important concepts will be explored in classroom-ready activities through meaningful settings, diagrams, tables, plots, and symbolic analysis.
 
Speakers
Date:November 11-13, 2015
Location: NCTM Regional Conference & Exposition, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Speaker: Kyle Eller, Barb Lynch, Amy TerEick
Description: Presentations at the regional conference.
 
Selecting and Using Tasks to Develop MP4: Model with Mathematics
Date: November 18-20, 2015
Location: NCTM Regional Conference & Exposition, Nashville, Tennessee
Speaker: Ashli Black
Description: What considerations should we make when selecting modeling tasks for our students? While working tasks designed to develop student proficiency in MP4, we will investigate several important characteristics of modeling tasks. Additional topics for discussion include classroom environment, potential pitfalls, and available resources.
