09.20.19 Advance Your Inner Mathematician (Session 2) #TrinityLearns

Anticipating Student Responses:

  • Notice and Respond to Student Thinking
  • Challenges to face and take up

Course Goals:

At the end of the semester, participants should be able to say:

  • I can exercise mathematical flexibility to show what I know in more than one way.
  • I can intentionally plan and teach using the 5 Practice Framework.

Session Goals:

At the end of this session, participants should be able to say:

  • I can select cognitively challenging mathematical tasks that align to the specified learning goal.
  • I can work independently and collectively to anticipate student responses.
