balanced math framework overview1
Balanced Math Framework Overview

Ask Yourself...…

Before Daily Math Review, in what ways were teachers at your school helping students to retain math concepts and skills they have already been taught?

DAILY MATH REVIEW

  • Daily Math Review:
  • Number Sense = Success with Computational Skills
  • Key to Effective Practice is Timely + Specific
  • Daily Reflection Increases Responsibility for Learning
  • Student Awareness of Misunderstandings

More info? Pgs. 3 - 22

Balanced Math Framework Overview

Ask Yourself...…

How are your teachers providing students daily mental practice with number sense?

How are teachers providing students opportunities to develop their own strategies for doing math problems in their head?

MENTAL MATH

  • Mental Math:
  • Three-problem computational brain workout (5 min)
  • Mental Practice – Computing math facts + Combining operations.
  • Daily practice to develop + retain number sense and computational skills

More info? Pgs. 23 - 28

Balanced Math Framework Overview

PROBLEM SOLVING

with be a Professional Development Focus in the 2013-14 School Year.

Ask Yourself...…

How are your teachers providing opportunities for students to apply and explain their mathematical reasoning?

How are teachers including writing into the math block?

PROBLEM SOLVING

  • Problem solving:
  • Organize and consolidate mathematical thinking through communication.
  • Analyze and evaluate the mathematical thinking of strategies.
  • Use language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas precisely.

More info? Pgs. 29 - 69

Balanced Math Framework Overview

Consider...…

If we want students to know what mathematics is, as a subject, they must understand it. When we memorize rules for moving symbols around on a paper we may be learning something, but we are not learning mathematics.

CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING

balanced math framework overview5
Balanced Math Framework Overview

DESIGNING A CONCEPTUAL UNIT:

Establish a mathematical focus for the unit.

Locate the grade-specific math standards.

“Unwrap” those identified standards.

Determine the essential mathematical concepts.

Decide on the Big Ideas.

Write the Essential Questions.

Design an end-of-unit post-assessment.

Create a rubric or scoring guide.

Design a pre-assessment.

Plan the instructional lessons.

Share the Essential Questions.

Administer the pre-assessments.

Score the pre-assessments.

Begin teaching the unit.

Assess student understanding.

Share with students.

Peer-, Self and Teacher-assess

Ask the students to write a self-reflection.

CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING

More info? Pgs. 71 - 96

FACT FLUENCY

with be a Professional Development Focus in the 2013-14 School Year.

Ask Yourself...…

Do your teachers have an accountability system in place so that students not only learn, but retain their math facts?

FACT FLUENCY

  • Mastery of Math Facts:
  • Teach and Practice Math Facts Daily.
  • Title I Schools: Fastt Math Program
  • Non-Title Schools: xtramath.com
  • All Schools: Mastering Basic Math Facts Book – Full of Activities and Lessons

More info? Pgs. 97 - 112

Ask Yourself...…

How frequently are teachers collecting student data from math assessments and how are they using this data to improve student achievement?

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT

  • Common Formative Assessment:
  • Collaboratively designed by grade level team.
  • Use results to evaluate student understanding.
  • Provide feedback needed to differentiate instruction.
  • Assessment truly informs instruction.

More info? Pgs. 113 - 128

Time Management

How do you fit it all in?

Remember – start small – one step at a time!

Step 1: Daily Math Review (15 – 20 Minutes)

Step 2: Mental Math (2 – 5 Minutes or Transition Time)

Step 3: Fact Fluency (10 – 15 Minutes)

Step 4: Conceptual Understanding and/or Problem Solving (Remaining class time – Whole group and/or small group)

SAMPLE SCHEDULES

PGS. 179 - 183
