Dear Math Friends,
Need some help with systematically incorporating the CCSS Math Practices in your classroom?
Discussion Guide FlipCards were created as a companion to "Common Core Math Practices Through Problem-Solving: Stuck? Discussion Guide."
The "Stuck?" FlipCards serve as a convenient reminder of possible questions to pose to lead students to generate ideas about what to do when they are stuck during problem solving. Thoughtful questioning is crucial to guiding students to produce meaningful answers. Questions are provided that you can use to encourage students to come up with appropriate ideas that can be listed on an anchor chart titled “Stuck?” This chart will be used in a discussion about perseverance, a component of CCSS Math Practice #1: “Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them” and will become an important reference tool for your students. A sample “Stuck?” anchor chart is included, as is a copy of the 8 Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice.
The FlipCards are designed to copy onto cardstock, bind with a ring, and keep in the area where class discussions occur. They could also be stored in a 3-ring binder.
More CCSS Math Practice Anchor Chart Discussion Guides and the corresponding Step-by-Step Guides to Implementing Math Practices Through Problem Solving and FlipCards are coming soon!
Hope this blesses your math teaching! Thanks for your support!
