Teachers need this ppt as a handout for continual reference during the activities-will also need HSCE’s from MDE for reference
Each teacher: makes a list of words that demonstrate “proficiency”-Share with partner, share with small group, share with whole group-record.THEN think about each listed point of view-do you need to add more words? Is there an overlap?
Background of this definition-use of the definition in the HSCE’s documents –An assignment could be to read the section for each strand.

Mathematics Modeling<br />Proficiency with HSCE’s <br />
Mathematics Proficiency-What does it mean?<br />Make a list of what it means to be mathematically proficient.<br />Share your list with a partner-what else would you add? Share your lists as a whole group. Can you come to a consensus?<br />
Now, specifically for each group listed below, what does it mean to be proficient?<br />For a teacher:<br />For a student:<br />For parents:<br />For employers:<br />How is proficiency for each category different? How is it similar? <br />
Mathematical Proficiency<br />This picture is a representation of mathematical proficiency as developed by the Committee on Mathematics Learning, established by the National Research Council at the end of 1998. This was a diverse committee of mathematicians, mathematics educators and policy-makers who reviewed current research. The result of this work was published in 2001 by National Research Council.

Mathematical Proficiency<br />For each of the next 5 slides that define the strands of proficiency, write at least one instance where you see this in your classroom or wish you could see this in your classroom.<br />Share with partner, small group, whole group<br />
