November Committee Meeting Agenda

 3:00 5 min Establishing Intent, Purpose, Norm Setting 3:05 10 min Math Warm-Up 3:15 20 min Analyze common formative assessment Number Talks Look at what was anticipated and what happened Analyze Data: What does the data tell you to do next? For January meeting, bring your common assessment, what you anticipated would happen, and then what happened with 2 classes (or more) 3:35 20 min MP 3: Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of Others SMP LL2LU: What does that look like? What will you implement between now and January? Discussion of Chapter 3 in Mike Flynn’s Beyond Answers using Sentence/Phrase/Word or Connect/Extend/Challenge 3:55 5 min Closure and Reflection (I liked (and why), I wish, I wonder) 2017-18 Feedback and Attendance Form 4:00 End of session

11.01.17 Embolden Your Inner Mathematician: Building Procedural Fluency from Conceptual Understanding #TrinityLearns

Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding.

Effective teaching of mathematics builds fluency with procedures on a foundation of conceptual understanding so that students, over time, become skillful in using procedures flexibly as they solve contextual and mathematical problems.
