  2. 2. Improving Low Student Achievement
  3. 3. “Upon separation from Malaysia in 1965, Singapore was faced with … high levels of unemployment and poverty. 70% of Singapore’s households lived in badly overcrowded conditions, and a third of its people squatted in slums on the city fringes. Unemployment averaged 14%, GDP per capita was less than $2,700, and half of the population was illiterate. “

  9. 9. What is Essential in Mathematics Literacy Let’s look at what international assessment (PISA) for 15-year-olds and Smarter Balanced Assessment for Hawaii State test suggest.

  17. 17. What is Essential in Mathematics Literacy What should students be learning in mathematics and what are the implications for classroom practices?
  18. 18. What is Essential in Mathematics Literacy What should students be learning in mathematics and what are the implications for classroom practices? communication metacognition number sense visualization patterns
  19. 19. What is Basics? The state standards (in this case Common Core State Standards) outline what the basics are. In the next three examples, the standards suggest that (Kindergarten) knowing that 12 is 10 and 2 is basic, (Grade 5) being able to add and subtract mixed numbers with different denominators is basic and (High School Algebra) being able to solve simple equations is basic.

  22. 22. What Does Teaching for Relational / Conceptual Understand Look Like?
  23. 23. Teaching for Meaning Making Concrete Materials Students are given bags of 6 beans each Anchor Task How many beans in 4 such bags? Students Talking Multiple Responses Count all Repeated addition Multiplication Board Writing Student Journal Meaning Making 4 x 6 is the same as 4 bags of 6 beans. Also linking new materials (multiplication) to old materials (addition).
  24. 24. Teaching for Meaning Making How do I know if I have taught in a meaningful way? • Link to previous knowledge • Link to a concrete scenario • Students can extend their thinking.
  25. 25. Teaching for Meaning Making
  26. 26. Teaching for Meaning Making Use of Textbooks Suggest the kind of anticipated responses (add another six, double, associative property and subtraction strategy) As a reflection tool for students at the end of the discussion (“Let’s see how they do it.”)

  28. 28. Teaching Through Problem Solving
  29. 29. What’s My Anchor Task? Anticipated Responses Differentiating Remediation Enrichment Acceleration
