Maggie's Progress Log
<span style=”color: inherit; font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>Long range goal: </span><span style=”color: inherit; font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>Build a solid program that 1) balances concepts (first!) and procedures, 2) creates enthusiasm and confidence in mathematics, and 3) 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! </span>
Goal #1 – Find a few rich tasks to introduce in the first days/weeks of school that will act as a diagnostic and review, and establish our math community norms and routines.
(I teach grade 7/8 but anticipate a range that corresponds to grade 3 – 10 curriculum expectations 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.)
