### Developing Math Tasks

http://answergarden.ch/view/63462

Answer Garden- Performance tasks challenge students to apply their knowledge and skills to respond to complex real-world problems. They can best be described as collections of questions and activities that are coherently connected to a single theme or scenario. These activities are meant to measure capacities such as depth of understanding, writing and research skills, and complex analysis, which cannot be adequately assessed with traditional assessment questions. (Smarter Balanced, 2012)

DEPTH OF Knowledge (Rigor)

Retrieved from: Smarter Balanced

- Type I tasks include a balance of conceptual understanding, fluency, and application. These tasks can involve any or all mathematical practice standards.

- Type II tasks call for written arguments/justifications, critique of reasoning, or precision in mathematical statements (MP. 3, 6). These tasks can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

- Type III tasks call for modeling/application in a real-world context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

- Standards context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.
- Mathematical Practices (Begin Here)
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

4. Model with mathematics.

5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

6. Attend to precision.

7. Look for and make use of structure.

8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

- Begin with Real World and use factual data context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.
- Then move to abstract or symbolic
- Do not use distracting graphs, pictures, etc.
- Non Math vocabulary 1 grade level below

- Concise Questions context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.
- Time for Exploration
- creating conjectures and understanding
- perplexity or wonder
- Photos or videos are useful

- Allow time for Communication context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.
- MP 3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
- Develop roles in small group (facilitator, recorder, manager, reporter)
- Allow think time begin with individual time

- Anticipate Questions
- Group asks question guide thinking “no answers”

- Set Clear Expectations (consistent)
- Some problems short (opener type)
- Open with a literacy passage to introduce

- Task Name context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.
- Grade Level
- Task Description
- Standards
- Mathematical Practices
- Create a Rubric or Scoring

- What standard are you trying to address? context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.
- What are some real life situations for this age group that is relevant?
- Cell Phones/Mobile devices
- Games
- Sports
- Music Downloads
- Ask for a survey at beginning of year what they enjoy.

Do you want to have a Party? context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

What do you see?

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

Now what do you notice?

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

What do you see on this picture?

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

What do you think?

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

Now ask them how much they think these items might cost for 1 student?

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

Notebook: $1.00

Pack of Paper: $0.50

Colored Pencils: $1.50

Scissors: $2.00

Eraser: $1.00

Ruler: $0.50

Pack of Pencils: $0.50

Folders: $3.00

Now ask them how much do these items cost for 1 student based on the information provided?

How much would these supplies cost for our class?

How did you calculate that?

Beginning of Year Task Example context or scenario (MP.4) and can also involve other mathematical practice standards.

Notebook: $1.00

Pack of Paper: $0.50

Colored Pencils: $1.50

Scissors: $2.00

Eraser: $1.00

Ruler: $0.50

Pack of Pencils: $0.50

Folders: $3.00

How much would these supplies cost for 10 students?

How much would these supplies cost for 100 students?

How much would these supplies cost for 500 students?

How did you calculate each of the above?

- This could be appropriate for any grade one way to make it accessible for a 1st grader is to change it to just calculating how much the supplies are that are dollar amounts.
- Then focus on 1 item that might be $1.00 to find how much for 10 students or the class question.
- You might want to give them actual play money to represent the money.

Technology In Math accessible for a 1

- Does the tool provide a meaningful model to support the mathematics?
- Does the tool extend students’ thinking and support their learning of the given mathematical topic?
- Is the tool necessary?
- Is the tool easy to use?
- Does the tool provide support for students to engage in and solve a problem?

- Virtual Manipulative Library mathematics?

- Shodor
- http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/

- Close to 20, 100, 1000 (from mathematics?pearson)
- Wings (see quick images and comparing)
- Brainbow (fun for teachers and challenging)
- Hungry Fish (good for addition/subtraction starts off easy and gets challenging)
- Hands On Equations
- Math Kid (very basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)

Math and Literacy mathematics?

- Meaningful and has purpose mathematics?
- Read Alouds, small group reads
- Teach how to write in math
- Begin Day 1
- Model
