This workshop focuses on the shift in Rigor in Missouri’s Math Learning Standards. We will explore the Next Generation Assessment problems, discuss how computational fluency and conceptual understanding work in tandem, and explore the array of technological resources that provide real world problems, tasks, visuals, data and multi-disciplinary situations for students to solve.
Rigor requires understanding of mathematical concepts, computational fluency with arithmetic, and application of knowledge to real world situations.
Practice addressed during this workshop at EducationPlus with Jan Keenoy and Nancy George:
#3 Construct viable arguments & critique reasoning of others
#4 Model with mathematics
#5 Use appropriate tools strategically
#6 Attend to Precision
Register online for the all-day June 30th workshop. Cost is $159 for members and $199 for non-members. In addition, one graduate credit is available.
