Math Teacher Leader Meeting

Developed by the Milwaukee Mathematics Partnership (MMP) with support by the National Science Foundation

What is the “one thing” you are bringing back from October’s assessment session on the Teaching & Learning Principle to share today?Developed by the Milwaukee Mathematics Partnership (MMP) with support by the National Science Foundation

We Are Learning To . . .

Understand and identify the cognitive demand levels of mathematical tasks.

Developed by the Milwaukee Mathematics Partnership (MMP) with support by the National Science Foundation

Success Criteria

- We will be successful if at the end of the session, we can understand and identify the features of the four levels of cognitive demand of mathematical tasks.

Building Academic Vocabulary

- Self-Assess using the scale of 1-4
- Step 1: Cognitive Demand
- Step 2: State in your own words
- Step 3: Create a visual

Cognitive Demand…

- “The kind and level of thinking required of students in order to successfully engage with and solve the task.”
Stein, Smith, Henningsen, & Silver, (2000)

Reading: “Analyzing Mathematics Instructional Tasks”

- Individually read the entire article.
- Each person share one idea from the article at your table.

Memorization Tasks

Procedures Without Connections to understanding, meaning or concepts Tasks

High Level Cognitive Demands

Procedures With Connections to understanding, meaning or concepts Tasks

Doing Mathematics Tasks

Four Levels of Cognitive Demand in Mathematical TasksTable Group Sort Activity

- Lay out the 4 green category cards
- Deal out the 8 blue Mathematical Task Cards to everyone in the group.
- Refer to the “Task Analysis Guide” for criteria.
- As you place your Mathematical Task cards into a category, explain your reasoning.
- Help each other justify the placements.

Cognitive Demands and Features

Sample Tasks

Success Criteria

- We will be successful if at the end of the session, we can understand and identify the features of the four levels of cognitive demand of mathematical tasks.
In your notebook, respond to the following:

- Which of the four levels of cognitive demand are you most comfortable with -why?
- Which one do you understand the least -why?
- Something I want to know more about is…?

Debriefing the Lesson!

- Discuss the mathematical tasks from the content session.
- Come to consensus at your table on which of the cognitive demand levels best fits each of the mathematical tasks.

Memorization Tasks

Procedures Without Connections to understanding, meaning or concepts Tasks

High Level Cognitive Demands

Procedures With Connections to understanding, meaning or concepts Tasks

Doing Mathematics Tasks

Building Academic Vocabulary

- Revisit Steps 2-3
- Self-Assess using the scale of 1-4

Your assignment for the New Year!

In your textbook series…

- “Procedures with Connections” Task…
- “Doing Mathematics” Task
- Make a copy of each task, and bring it with you to the January MTL meeting.
- Please note grade level and publisher somewhere on your copies.
- We will collect and keep your copies!
