Workshop Dates: January 25-26, 2017

Grades: K-5

Known for: progressions videos, blog, 3-act tasks

As elementary educators we’ve misinterpreted the term “model” as simply the use of manipulatives. This is causing our students to miss the mark when it comes to the Standards of Mathematical Practice: Model with Mathematics. Through the use of 3-Act tasks, we’ll explore what mathematical modeling is, what it looks like, and how we can support this work in our elementary classrooms.  We’ll examine the structure of problem-based lessons and how simple changes in our daily practice can make difficult tasks accessible to students.
