### Professional Development Learning Targets

• I can explain what it means to teach to the standards, as opposed to teaching the topics of the standards.

• I can compare and make connections between the A-CED and A-REI standards.

### Two Minute Review A-CED and A-REI Standards

• Please take one minute to re-familiarize yourself with the standards we will be considering in this session.

• Highlight, underline, or use your own language in the margins to remind yourself of the ‘content’ of these specific standards: A-CED 2, 3, 4 and A-REI 5, 6

### Video of Teaching Solving Systems of Linear Equations

• Make note of the standards that are being taught as you watch this 5-minute video clip:

### Five minutes to share your thoughts…

• Share your thoughts/insights on the standards being taught with a table partner, then with others at your table.

• Choose someone to share out from your table with the group.

• Everyone should have a copy of “Cash Box” from Illustrative Mathematics.

• INDEPENDENTLY, please brainstorm what you know and some solution strategies. (You will have time to work with others, but for now, please just work on your own.)

• Now, share your ideas with a partner at your table. Begin to formulate a way to solve the problem.

• Be ready to share with your group how you solved the problem.

### Whole Group Discussion

• What was different about your experience as a learner, in this task, than perhaps how you learned to solve ‘word problems’ in high school?

• What Standards for Mathematical Practice did you exemplify in your experience today?

### Modeling a Formative Assessment Lesson

Solving Linear Equations in Two Variables

### Notebooks and Pens

• Read through the questions and try to answer them as carefully as you can.

• Please work independently for 10 minutes.

• Count off 1-?

• Go to that numbered table to complete the individual task.

### Cash Registers—Small Groups

• Now, go back to your original seat and compare your solution method with others at your table.

• Work together in your groups to produce an answer together that is better than your individual ones.

### Comparing Different Approaches

• Examining Student Work Samples

• Whole-Class Discussion

### Improving Notebooks and Pens

• This would be the next lesson, if there is not time during the original lesson.

• Look at your original responses and think about what you have learned this lesson.

• Using what you have learned, try to improve your work.

### Professional Development Learning Targets

• I can explain what it means to teach to the standards, as opposed to teaching the topics of the standards.

• I can compare and make connections between the A-CED and A-REI standards.
