Contemplate then Calculate your way into the school year! This summer, more and more teachers are preparing to start their school year with a week of Contemplate then Calculate. They see the routine as a powerful vehicle for establishing a strong culture for learning. We couldn’t agree more. Contemplate then...
Thank you to Linda Cooper Foreman and the entire Teachers Development Group team for once again creating an exceptional learning experience for all. As always, we are leaving TDG’s Leadership Seminar grateful for the participants’ energy and engagement as they grappled with and provided insights into our “rough draft”...
This task is great for #DeciDefend #FosteringMPs
"Of all the Regents Follies you share, [these] drive me the most crazy. Gaaah!" @mathhombre
2+1 strategy goal is totally supported by avenues of thinking! #AATM17 #FosteringMPs @AZMathTeachers
"Repeated reasoning helps Ss to see math as more than 'magic rules' that only a few understand." @GraceKelemanik at AATM #FosteringMPs
Repetition in counting, calculating, process #typesofrepeatedreasoning #AATM17 #FosteringMPs @AZMathTeachers

Day 5: #geometry Ss share different strategies & structural thinking to find total number of shaded squares! #CThenC #MTBoS #FosteringMPs
Day 6: #APCalc talks roots, turning points, y-intercepts, +/- & end behavior to make connections & create a new rep! #ConnectingReps #MTBoS2
@djacobsCMS @GraceKelemanik For #ConnectingReps, what reps do you use for gcf and lcd? That's a starting point to create a task.
First, what parts of the derivations look familiar? Why?
Which diagram goes with which derivation of a parabola? #connectingreps
@TheMillermath nice way to deepen content understanding and #fosteringMPs. Where did Ss eyes land on the visuals? when #ConnectingReps
#ConnectingReps ? teaching HS Ss Pythagoras they learned in MS, so trying to figure out how to deepen their thinking rather than start anew
