TCM Mathematics Intervention

  • 78% of adults cannot explain how to compute the interest paid on a loan
  • 71% cannot calculate miles per gallon on a trip
  • 58% cannot calculate 10% tip on a bill

Foundations for Success: The Final Report of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel, U.S. Department of Education 2008

slide8

TCM Mathematics Intervention

“All students need to be more mathematically proficient than in the past, and many more students need to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics and science.”

—Cathy Seeley 2005

slide9

TCM Mathematics Intervention

The National Mathematics Advisory Panel States…

“To prepare students for Algebra, the curriculum must simultaneously develop conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and problem-solving skills.”

slide18

Strategies to Engage Students

  • Developing vocabulary
  • Using manipulatives
  • Solving real-life problems
  • Playing games
slide20

Developing Vocabulary

“The language of mathematics is very precise compared with English used in common discourse, and this difference separates mathematics from most curricular areas.”

—California Department of Education 2006

slide21

Developing Vocabulary

  • Frontload the lesson
  • Revisit past vocabulary words
  • Repeat games and activities
  • Clearly set up expectations
slide23

Developing Vocabulary

  • teach/taught
  • conceptual understanding
  • procedural proficiency
  • multiple representations
  • multiple algorithms
  • problem solving
  • manipulatives
slide26

Differentiating Activities

Tiering/Leveling Activities

  • Start with whole class activity
  • Below grade level—Narrow the scope of the activity and make it more concrete
  • English language learners—Add context to the activity and make it more concrete
  • Above grade level—Increase the complexity of the activity
slide27
Differentiate through:

Content (what is taught)

Process (how it is taught)

Product (what they produce)

Differentiate because of:

Readiness

Learning styles

Interests

slide31

Developing Vocabulary

  • Get into groups of 3–4 and develop your own differentiated vocabulary activity.
  • Be ready to share this with others in five minutes.
slide33

Assessment

“Assessments are learning opportunities for students and for teachers. Students can learn more mathematics, and teachers can learn more about their students—and sometimes more mathematics, as well—from all types of assessments.”

—Long 2000

slide34

Assessment

  • Summative assessments
    • individual
    • grade-level criterion-referenced tests
    • authentic assessments
  • Formative assessments
    • group and individual
    • authentic assessments
slide35

Assessment

Four Steps to Quality Instruction

  • Diagnose
  • Placement tests quickly pinpoint students’ needs.
  • Decide
  • Placement test answer key shows where to place students in the program.
  • Develop
  • Choose a program with multiple components that allow you to easily develop a plan that works best for your students.
  • Deliver
  • Incorporate easy-to-follow lesson plans that allow you to deliver quality instruction.
slide36

Assessment

  • Diagnostic Pre-test
  • Formative Assessment Opportunities
  • Summative Assessment/Post-test

Assessment

Answer this question by yourself or with your “elbow partner.”

How do you assess mathematical thinking?

slide40

Using Manipulatives

When students use concrete objects to represent mathematical ideas, they learn to organize their thinking and reflect on concrete representations.

—Dean and Florian 2001

slide41

Using Manipulatives
