Guided Math

Rebecca Radicchi

Better Together Workshop

Pickett’s Mill Elementary

November 4, 2008

Based on the resources provided by the Cobb County District K-5 Math Coaches

what is guided math
What is Guided Math?
  • One component of a balanced mathematics program
  • Students learn in small flexible groups based on instructional level
  • Students work in appropriate standards-based workstations
what does guided math look like
What does Guided Math look like?
  • Includes:
    • Workstations based on the standards
    • Students working independently, in groups, and/or with teacher
    • Teachers formally and informally assessing student progress
  • A part of math instruction 2 or more days a week
how do i set up my groups
How do I set up my groups?
  • Originally based on the Pre-IMI Analysis by standard
  • Group according to analysis of standards not necessarily total missed
  • Can have 2-3 groups
  • Groups can/should changeregularly based on student understanding
guided math workstations
Guided Math Workstations
  • Set up around the room on desks, tables, or bulletin boards (remember technology)
  • Put in tubs and placed on students’ desks
  • Based on concepts to maintain and/or concepts to learn
  • Should access levels of Bloom’s
guided math students
Guided Math Students . . .
  • Keep work in progress in a folder
  • Keep a record of which workstation they complete daily along with any products in a workstation folder
  • Are accountable for keeping up with workstation work, recording completed workstation daily, and producing quality work
guided math teachers
Guided Math Teachers . . .
  • Set up standards-based workstations based on student need
  • Lead whole group discussion about the workstations at least once a week
  • Develop a system for recording what the students are doing in the workstations
how do i get started with workstations
How do I get started with workstations?
  • Decide on workstations:
    • Strands
    • GPS concepts to maintain
    • Skills being taught
    • Multiple intelligence
    • Fluency building activity
  • Be sure the workstations are authentic, standards-based activities and not “busy work”.
  • Create a planning system and a student log
ideas for workstations
Ideas for Workstations
  • Technology: Smartboard, computer
  • Standards-Based Games: card games, etc.
  • Problem Solving: Exemplars, Logic, Problem-Solving Deck
  • Math Journals
  • Fluency Building Activities: timed tests, flash cards, etc.
  • Guided Manipulative Exploration: geoboards, measurement, etc.

Brainstorm some ideas under the “Workstation” flap on your foldable. Be ready to share!

summarizing the lesson
Summarizing the Lesson
  • Math Journal Quick Writes
  • Discussion
  • Understanding Check:

-thumps up, thumps down, etc.

-Final Countdown, 3-2-1, Ticket out the

Door, etc.

  • Review and answer essential question
  • Math Chair or “Hot Seat”:

-Could use sample math journal prompts for students to respond to

-Read math journal

  • Reread standard, ask kids if they met the standard.
