Maggie’s Progress Log
My long range goal is to build a solid program that balances concepts (first!) and procedures, creates enthusiasm and confidence in mathematics, and is flexible enough to evolve with my learning and growth, to be based on the students in the room, and to allow for pivoting the plan!
Goal #1 – Find a few rich tasks to introduce in the first days/weeks of school that will act as a diagnostic for me, a review for the students, and establish our math community norms and routines. (I teach grade 7/8 but anticipate a range that corresponds to grade 3 – 10 in my room this year, so I am looking for low floor – high ceiling activities anchored in conceptual understanding of multiplication and division to start.)
