Use Math Tasks to Facilitate Deeper Understanding
The math tasks in this product differ from conventional math tasks. This approach has been proven to facilitate deeper student understanding and differentiation in the classroom.
How they work: Information is missing from each task to teach your students how to apply the standard’s concepts in real-world settings. For example, a question might ask how many legs the students saw while on a field trip to the zoo. The students would then have to reasonably estimate how many animals they saw, how many legs on each animal, and how many legs they saw in total. Your students might all get a different answer but as long as they do the math correctly, the final answers can be different.
Students can work individually, in small groups, or in partnerships to complete the math tasks given. They will use skills such as rounding, estimating, multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting, guess and check, drawing pictures, using equations etc. to solve these problems. They can then share their work with the class and explain their thinking.
Use Exit Tickets to Reinforce Learning and Assess Understanding at the Door
The exit tickets are a quick way for students to show what they know and for the teacher to assess their lesson. It also gives a quick snapshot of the material covered that day and who needs to be retaught.
Use I Can Statements to Set Clear Objectives and Guide Student Learning
The I Can statements help set expectations, and provide structure and guidance to the students. They are in kid-friendly language so the students know exactly what they will be learning.
Answer Keys Included
Each exit ticket comes with an answer key for quick and easy grading.
