2. What Accelerated Math Does Generates individualized assignments Scores, gives immediate feedback, and records progress Identifies which concepts students understand and which they are struggling with Empowers each student to take control of learning

3. Getting to Know Powerful Math Practice

4. Why is practice effective? Myelin Sheath Neurons Thicker = faster and better

5. What makes Practice Powerful? What makes practice powerful? • Appropriate difficulty/challenge 2. Appropriate quantity 3.Distributed review

6. Let’s practice

8. Class and School

9. Form Number

10. Objectives

11. Work assignments and show the work Inform teacher Allow collaboration p. A23

13. Filling out a NEW scan card

15. 2. Check the assignment type

16. 3. Write the form number

17. 4. Bubble the form number

19. Scan

20. Principles of Effective Practice • Dedicate time to practice • Practice what you need to practice • Practice until you know it • Let instruction inform practice and let practice inform instruction • Practice boosts confidence • Review cements learning

21. Getting to Know Accelerated Math Content

22. Teachers work through a cycle

23. An assistant could . . . Accelerated Math can . . .

24. Ideas behind the design of AM

25. Questions:

26. What is a Library? • A library is a group of math objectives • Each library contains all the objectives for a single grade or course; for example, Grade 5 Library or Algebra 1 Library • You choose which library(s) to use for your class

27. What is an Objective? • An objective is a math concept; for example: Dividing Whole Numbers by Fractions • You assign objectives to students and Accelerated Math generates the assignment • Use existing objective order or reorder objectives to match your curriculum

28. Questions:

29. Adding a Library • Review the Library Guide and Scope and Sequence • Print Objective List (RP) or Class Objectives List (Desktop) Report • Reorder objectives to match your curriculum (optional) • Set state tags

30. Add objectives to the Assignment Book

31. Assign objectives to students

32. Understand how students advance in their practice

33. NOW….

34. Managing objectives

35. Students practice objective 1

36. After they score some Practices . . . still working met Criteria 5 out of last 6 correct; 18 problems max. not met

37. Practices can have multiple objectives Objectives “Ready to Work” Review objectives Any others that you assign p. A37
