  1. “Big Math Idea”

  2. Five Attributes of Worthwhile Tasks

  3. 1. It focuses on significant mathematical ideas. • Big ideas in mathematics • Problematic (solution not apparent immediately)

  4. 2. It is developmentally appropriate • Ideas are within reach from both a cognitive level and from an experiential one

  5. 3. It is contextualized. • Situating mathematical tasks within everyday contexts

  6. 4. It offers an appropriate level of challenge. • Offer a cognitive challenge that requires students to make decisions and explore new ideas, and yet not be so challenging as to feel overwhelming.

  7. 5. It encourages multiple perspectives. • Stimulates a variety of strategies, representations, and mathematical ideas and encourages students to explain and justify their thinking.

  8. At your table… • Develop a worthwhile instructional task for an inclusive 4th grade classroom based on tonight’s “Big Math Idea”. • Justify why it is a worthwhile task.

  9. At your table… • Read description of “C.H.”

  10. At your table… • Brainstorm how you would support C.H. in order to make this a worthwhile task for him. Consider our discussion of scaffolds and tiers from our last class.
