  • Mathematical Practices

  • Terminology

  • Tools and Representations


Standards for mathematical practice
Standards for Mathematical Practice

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Construct viable arguments and critique others’.

Model with mathematics.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

Attend to precision.

Look for and make use of structure.

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.


Module assessments
Module Assessments

  • Take 5 minutes to work on the designated Assessment.

  • How does this task measure the skills and understanding that are addressed in this module?


Topic openers
Topic Openers

  • Read the descriptive narrative.

  • Make note of important information that will help educators implement these lessons.


Topic openers1
Topic Openers

  • How does each topic contribute to the overall instructional goal of the module?

  • How are the Topic Openers useful as a planning tool?

  • What is the relationship between the Topic Opener and the other components of the module?


Agenda2
AGENDA

  • Review of Module Structure

  • Examination of Module Overview, Assessments, and Topic Openers

  • Lesson Study

  • Coherence Across the Module


Lesson study
Lesson Study

  • Examine the development and function of each lesson component.

    • Fluency Practice

    • Application Problems

    • Concept Development

    • Student Debrief

  • How do the lesson components work together to achieve rigor and lead toward the culminating assessment?


  • Lesson study fluency practice
    Lesson Study: Fluency Practice

    • Daily, substantial, sustained, and supported by the lesson structure

    • 10-20 minutes of easy-to-administer activities

    • Energetic activities that allow students to see measureable progress

    • Promotes automaticity – allows students to reserve their cognitive energy for higher-level thinking

    • Supports conceptual understanding and application as well as the mathematical practices


    Lesson study fluency practice1
    Lesson Study: Fluency Practice

    • Fluency activities serve a variety of purposes:

      • Maintenance: Staying sharp on previously learned skills

      • Preparation: Targeted practice for the current lesson

      • Anticipation: Building skills to prepare students for the in-depth work of future lessons

  • In fluency work, all students are actively engaged with familiar content. This provides a daily opportunity for continuous improvement and individual success.


  • Lesson study fluency practice2
    Lesson Study: Fluency Practice


    Lesson study fluency practice3
    Lesson Study: Fluency Practice

    • In what skills should students be fluent in order to achieve success in this module?

    • At your table, examine the Fluency Practices in this lesson, considering their specific function within the lesson.


    Lesson study application problems
    Lesson Study: Application Problems

    • Application involves using relevant conceptual understandings and appropriate strategies even when not prompted to do so.

    • Time allotted to application varies, but is commonly 5-10 minutes of the lesson.

    • The Read, Draw, Write (RDW) process is modeled and encouraged through daily problem solving.


    Lesson study application problems1
    Lesson Study: Application Problems

    Lesson 2:

    Amy is baking muffins. Each baking try can hold 6 muffins.

    If Amy bakes 4 trays of muffins, how many muffins will she have all together?

    The corner bakery has made 10 times as many muffins as Amy baked. How many muffins did the bakery produce?

    Bonus: If the corner bakery packages the muffins in boxes of 100, how many boxes of 100 could they make?


    Lesson study concept development
    Lesson Study: Concept Development

    • Constitutes the major portion of instruction and generally comprises at least 20 minutes of the total lesson time. 

    • Builds toward new learning through intentional sequencing within the lesson and across the module.

    • Often utilizes the deliberate progression from concrete to pictorial to abstract, whichcompliments and supports an increasingly complex understanding of concepts.

    • Accompanied by thoughtfully sequenced problem sets and reproducible student sheets.




    Lesson study concept development3
    Lesson Study: Concept Development

    • Complete the problem set.

    • What do you notice about the sequence of problems?


    Lesson study student debrief
    Lesson Study: Student Debrief

    • Includes sample dialogue or suggested lists of questions to invite the reflection and active processing of the totality of the lesson experience.

    • Encourages students to articulate the focus of the lesson and the learning that has occurred.

    • Promotes mathematical conversation with and among students.

    • Allows student work to be shared and analyzed.

    • Closes the lesson with daily informal assessment known as Exit Tickets.

    Key points1
    Key Points

    • The base-10 system allows for consistency across all units.

      • Consistency applies to rounding, as the methods used in Grade 3 rounding are applied to Grade 4 rounding of larger units.

  • “10 times as much” builds on the understanding of bundling groups of 10.

  • “Bundling” and “unbundling” from Grade 2 progresses to the addition and subtraction algorithms.


  • Next steps
    Next Steps

    • How can you transfer what you know about the structure of a module and its key components to next steps in the planning process?

    • What is your plan for sharing this module with other administrators/teachers?
