& MATH MAKES SENSE 9
WORKSHOP



     January 28th, 2010
Prayer

Heavenly Father, remind us each day that,
 of all the gifts you give us, the greatest
 gift is love. It is not enough to share that
 love with those we hold dear. Open our
 hearts not just to those who are close to
 us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to
 judge and quick to forgive; show
 patience, empathy and love. Amen.
Goals for this Session:

   To become acquainted with the renewed
    Mathematics 90 curriculum

   To become familiar with the MMS 9 resource
    components and lesson format

   To get ready to teach Unit 2: Exponents and Powers

    tics/ccf.aspx

   According to the WNCP, the critical components
    students must encounter in a mathematics program
    are: communication, connection, mental math and
    estimation, problem solving, reasoning, technology,
    & visualization.

How can we promote deeper understanding and
  incorporate inquiry learning in the mathematics
  classroom.?
“BELIEVE IN KIDS!
GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO
SOLVE PROBLEMS AND MAKE SENSE
OF MATHEMATICS. YOU DO NOT
NEED TO TELL THEM EVERYTHING.
KIDS ARE AMAZING!”

The Lesson Model
                   Investigate
l
                    Reflect &
                     Share

                    Connect

                   Discuss the
                      Ideas


                    Practice
The Lesson Model

1. Investigate – brief problem-solving
   activity designed to draw out prior
   knowledge and stimulate student
   interest

Reflect and Share – allows students to
 make connections and develop
 mathematical reasoning skills
The Lesson Model

2. Connect – presents new problems and
   instruction to teach the math concepts.
   Involves a range of examples.

Discuss the ideas – opportunity for
   students to communicate their
   understanding of the concepts
The Lesson Model
3. Practice – progressively challenging
   range of problems
Assessment Focus Question – allows
   students to demonstrate their level of
   achievement
Take it Further – extension questions
Reflect – opportunity for students to
   communicate/summarize their
   understanding
Math Makes Sense Overview
ProGuide Structure to Support Teachers:
 Before – Getting Started: Teachers should activate
  prior knowledge using the introduction to the lesson
  and key questions. Present the problem in the
  investigate and ensure expectations are clear.
 During – Investigate: Teachers should listen
  carefully, observe and assess, and ask questions to
  facilitate learning.
 After – Connect: Review responses from the reflect
  and share. Use the connect and examples to
  complete the lesson.
Items to consider
   Importance of a positive attitude
   Classroom organization
   Manipulative organization
   Parent Communication (i.e. division parent letters)
   Use of Calculators
