101 Questions

Classroom Culture:Flawed Beliefs About Math

- The learning sequence in math is linear.
- The rate of learning math is linear.
- Since math is sequential, if topic C depends on A and B, we cannot possibly address C until we address A and B first.

Transferring Mathematical Authority

Always Never

“We” “I”

“AN answer” “THE answer”

Students won’t be paid to solve problems with answers in the back of a book.

We must prepare our students for jobs that do not yet exist.

One can never bench 300 lbs. by only lifting 100 lbs. Problems prove their worth by hitting back!

MTPS Examples

Classroom Seating Problem

Oil Storage Tank Problem

Mailbox Problem

Broken Pipe Problem

Recap & Closure years?

- Discuss how to establish a culture of cooperation & process in math class.
- Craft our own definition of low threshold, high ceiling tasks by comparing examples.
- Practice the process of formulating questions.

THANK YOU years?

“Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals

Above the crowd: a little bit more.

They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.”

- A. Louis Vickery
