Using Multiple Entry Level Tasks to Foster Mathematical Reasoning and Sense Making – Dr. Marilyn Strutchens
In this session, participants will experience a variety of multiple entry-level tasks, such as open middle tasks and other problem types. They will see how these tasks can be used to reveal what students know. We will also examine student responses and videos of classroom instruction.
