Advance Your Inner Mathematician Session 1
For teachers to continue learning after Embolden Your Inner Mathematician and anchored in Smith and Stein’s The 5 Practices in Practice: Successfully Orchestrating Mathematical Discussion in your Middle School Classroom.
From Dan Meyer
” But the maxim I hold most closely right now is that we act ourselves into beliefs more often than we believe our way into action. So I encourage you more than anything right now to adopt a series of productive actions that can reshape your beliefs.
Here are five such actions: anticipate, monitor, select, sequence, and connect. Those actions can convert a teacher’s love for math into a love for students and vice versa.”
In this six session series, we will study and implement these 5 practices in your classroom.
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 specify a learning goal and set an intention for learning.

I can select cognitively challenging mathematical tasks that align to the specified learning goal.
