    1. CAHSEE Lessons for Success CMC Conference Asilomar ??12/6/08 Ivan Cheng CSU Northridge Wendy Schroeder Nobel Middle School, LAUSD

    2. CAHSEE Lessons for Success Welcome & Introductions Please share your name and subjects that you teach

    3. CAHSEE failure rate is high for some In March, 2007 19,158 12th graders took the CAHSEE after failing in 10th & 11th They were also among the 14,104 who did not pass... and missed their graduation Grant funded project to address problem Los Angeles Valley College Los Angeles Unified School District California State University Northridge

    4. Students are unsuccessful in CAHSEE Despite taking up to 4 years of high school math classes Despite taking district review courses on Saturdays Despite completing HS graduation requirements Students lack confidence Students are mystified

    5. At your groups, identify some roadblocks that prevent your students from succeeding in math With the whole group, identify the top 3 or 4 roadblocks that are barriers to success

    6. Lack of basic facts Impatient students (want to do everything in head) Discouraged by history of failure Large classes (students cannot get enough support) Lack of parent support Test anxiety (freeze up on tests) Lack of reading skills Special education students & EL students needs Inability to focus and pay attention No connections Lack of relevance District/state limitations (API implications) Lack of study skills Lack of support for teacher professional development Lack of time Delayed results

    7. More review of basic skills More practice with CAHSEE prep books More materials, more Saturdays, more formulas to memorize, more, more, more

    8. Students who do not have a deep understanding of mathematics suspect that it is just a jumble of unrelated procedures and incomprehensible formulas. Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools (2005), p. 5

    9. Locate numbers consecutively and circle them Lets try that again Whats different this time? How did it feel this time? Ivan presents.Ivan presents.

    10. Focus on thinking instead of topics Lessons organized by themes You Can Do It (confidence building, demystifying CAHSEE) Language of Math (representing data) What Does It Mean? (interpreting data) Meaningful Relationships (patterns, rates, ratios) Things are Shaping Up (geometric relationships, ratios) Playing by the Rules (operations, rules, polynomials) Say It Again (multiple representations) Take a Chance (working with probability) Whats the Problem? (reasoning, problem solving) Practice Makes Perfect (error analysis, demystifying CAHSEE) Skills developed in context, not in isolation

    11. Organization of lessons Two or three focus lessons using a variety of activities Conceptual understanding and computational fluency Key thinking processes linked across topics Skills threaded rather than isolated Frequent successful experiences to build confidence Multiple representations to show meaningful connections Using patterns and explorations to promote critical thinking Repackaging concepts creatively to build retention

    12. Successful experiences to build confidence Multiple representations to show meaningful connections Patterns & explorations to develop critical thinking Repackaged concepts to promote retention
