10.25.19 Advance Your Inner Mathematician (Session 4) #TrinityLearns

Selecting and Sequencing Student Solutions:

  • Purposeful Selection to Tell a Coherent Story
  • Challenges to face and take upĀ 

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.
