MATH 90 CURRICULUM RENEWAL & 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 High School Math Website All the information you receive today is available to you on the GSCS High School Math Support Website: http://blog.scs.sk.ca/hayes/ Once you subscribe to this blog, you will receive an email update each time the website is updated with more information & resources. Math Support Workshops Tuesday, February 23rd, 1 - 4pm at Sion (Room 111): Units 3 & 1 Tuesday, March 23rd, 1 - 4pm at Sion (Room 111): Units 5 & 6 Unit 4 & 8 Workshop – TBA Individualized Support Technology support (i.e. use of test generator, DVD, CD, etc) Team Teaching Sharing of Resources Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help Why the change? Development of a Common Curriculum Framework: Western & Northern Canadian Protocal (WNCP, 2006) http://www.wncp.ca/english/subjectarea/mathema 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. Saskatchewan Math 9 Curriculum See website: https://www.edonline.sk.ca/webapps/curr-english- bb_bb60/index.jsp?view=0&XML=mathematics9.x ml How can we promote deeper understanding and incorporate inquiry learning in the mathematics classroom.? “BELIEVE IN KIDS!

It parallels the textbook, but provides a lower entry point for weak students. Handouts can also be used to review prior concepts and reinforce the course material. Math Makes Sense Overview Unit Components: Launch (includes key words, unit objectives, & purpose) Lessons Mid-Unit Review Game Study Guide Unit Review Practice Test Unit Problem Math Makes Sense Overview Extras: Cumulative Reviews (Units 1-3, Units 1–6, Units 1–9) Projects (before Unit 1, after Unit 9) Start where you are – encourages different learning styles Math Link- to highlight cross-curricular, mathematical or real-world connections Technology – to explore ways of using computers and calculators to do math Glossary 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 Assessment Focus Questions Word Walls – highlights key words in each unit UNIT 2 – POWERS AND EXPONENT LAWS Final Items Test Generator Session Math Smart board Session with Jeff Croteau Renewed Curriculum & MMS Implementation Checklist Questions?
