Deeper Mathematical Thinking

Join Bill for one or both of these sessions, designed to provide tools and resources to support deeper thinking in our students and ourselves!

AM SESSION-Higher Order Thinking - DOK 2 and 3 Questioning for I-LEARN and SAT Assessment Success!

Effective teaching uses a variety of question types to assess and gather evidence of student thinking, including questions that gather information, probe understanding, make the mathematics visible, and ask students to reflect on and justify their reasoning. Teachers are wonderful at “gathering information” questions. Getting teachers to ask Higher Order Thinking Questions well beyond simply gathering information is the goal. Teachers asking DOK 2 and DOK 3 questions will improve the overall performance of students in the class and on the SAT and I-Learn assessments. Examples, ideas and resources for asking purposeful questions will be presented, demonstrated, and discussed.

PM SESSION-Mathematically Rich Tasks that Elevate Student Achievement: 

Mathematics MUST be taught in context, so it is not just a set of rules to be memorized and soon forgotten. Mathematically Rich problems and asking good thinking questions help students understand and master the concepts that are being presented. These skills are also proven to increase the scores on standardized assessments like the SAT, ACT, and ISTEP+ Math Assessments. We all learn by doing. Teachers will define and explore how Mathematically Rich problems and asking good thinking questions bring an elevated level of thinking and doing math for students. Teachers will work on Mathematically Rich problems and be given resources to find and write their own Mathematically Rich problems and good purposeful thinking questions.
