A Unifying Theme of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
This 4-day workshop engages teachers across grades 4 – 14 as learners while modeling fully the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) that are at the heart of the CCSS.
The workshop focuses on the core CCSS content for Ratio & Proportional Reasoning across grades 6 through 8. Participants deepen their understanding of the mathematics of ratio and proportion and learn how to bring the Standards for Mathematical Practice to life in their classrooms. Participants engage as independent problem solvers and in small collaborative groups with tasks that are classroom appropriate. Assessment practices that optimize student learning are modeled.
Participants examine how to foster deep-level understandings in their students around:
- rates, ratios and unit rates,
- scale and scale factor,
- what it means to reason proportionally,
- connections between proportional relationships, lines and linear relationships,
- the role and importance of clear communication using proper mathematical language and notation.
