Scaffolding Rigorous Tasks for All Learners FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Sorry, but this session is FULL and we are unable to increase capacity further. Please select another session to attend during this period, rather then joining the wait list. 

This session will address the use of problem solving as formative assessment through rigorous mathematical tasks. Students need to be able to jump into problem solving and persevere in their endeavors.

This takes planning on the teacher's part. We need to help students persevere, organize, observe, conclude, use tools, justify their thinking & critique the thinking of others -- and insure that ALL students can access rigorous math tasks. We will look at new, as well as tried & true strategies that are necessary to scaffold accessibility.

You will experience mathematical tasks and strategies that help facilitate a path to success for all learners and look at how The Standards of Mathematical Practice will have a profound impact on classroom practices.
