    Goal 1:  Increase percent of students who are actively engaged in math throughout the class period.

    • Action Step 1:  Plan for a 3 Act Task once a week (determine what a good interval would be)
    • Action Step 2:  Intentionally teach Mathematical Argumentation (help student in their communication with each other and in evaluating things mathematically)
    • Action Step 3:  Explore Math Academy resources

    A book I would greatly recommend to help with step 2, is “5 Practices for Orchistrating Productive Mathematics Discussion” put out by the NCTM.  I got my copy on ebay for less than 5 dollars.  It’s a fairly short book at around 100 pages, but it’s very detailed with lots of examples.  Highly recommend that book.  Making Math Moments Podcast episode 2 I think deals with this specifically, but episodes 1-4 are where Jon and Kyle detail how to create those math moments.
