Structure of a Math Lesson • Diagnostic • Learning Tasks • Formative Assessment
Diagnostic Determine Individual Student Readiness • Math Message or Warm Up • Student responses reveal readiness • Which skill or concept needs a<en=on? • Who needs support? Example: Don wants to fence in part of his yard for a dog run. The dog run is a rectangle that measures 30 feet by 10 feet. How much fencing should he buy? Draw or explain.
Learning Tasks Develop & Apply Concepts 1 or 2 tasks develop the concept • Hands‐on • Pairs or small groups • Teacher listens, ques=ons, redirects 3rd task is applica=on • Usually in math journals • Teacher can target students in need Example: Task 1: Use geoboards to ﬁnd perimeters with given dimensions Task 2: Use geoboards to ﬁnd diﬀerent dimensions for same perimeter Task 3: EDM journal page ﬁnding all dimensions for a given perimeter
Formative Assessment Prescribes what needs to happen next • Individual student responses • Grades 3‐5 oKen looks like NJASK open‐ended task • Teacher reviews student responses • Determines next whole class lesson • Determines supports for individuals Example: Draper Elementary received 2200 feet of playground border. Describe 3 playgrounds that have a perimeter of 2200 feet. Explain which would make the best playground and why.
