  1. 1. Everyday Mathematics Attleboro Public Schools
  2. 2. University of Chicago School Mathematics Project Research (USCMP) Children come to school knowing more than they currently get credit for. Children can learn much more than what is usually expected of them. Mathematics means more when it is rooted in real-world problems and situations.
  3. 3. What Everyday Mathematics Does: Acknowledges children’s experiences and intuitions about mathematics Provides problem solving experiences in real-life contexts while allowing for diversity and various learning styles Promotes practice through meaningful games and activities Integrates content throughout the curriculum Provides repeated exposures, ensuring that children encounter and apply concepts over time, deepening mathematical understanding (begin, develop, secure)
  4. 4. What Everyday Mathematics Does Not Do: Encourage one word answer or strategy Teach by telling Encourage rote practice or memorization of rules in isolation
  5. 5. In Everyday Mathematics you can expect to see….. a problem-solving approach based on everyday situations an instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly frequent practice of basic skills, often through games lessons based on activities and discussion, not a textbook mathematical content that goes beyond basic arithmetic.
  6. 6. Student Materials • Student Journals • Student/My Reference Book • Templates
  7. 7. Parent Materials Family Letter School Web site for link to copies of the family letter Student/My Reference Book
  8. 8. Some Features of Everyday Math
  9. 9. SPIRALING CONCEPTS AND SKILLS Mastery of concepts Topics are introduced in and skills comes with an informal way and then presented numerous times repeated exposure in different contexts with and practice, not just gradually more formal, one lesson. directed instruction. When students revisit topics, they make new connections and gain different insights. Students regularly review and practice new concepts through activities, games, and assignments.
  10. 10. An instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly… Write each fraction Write a 10-digit Math Boxes as a whole number number that has or mixed number. 9 in the tens place 17/4 = ____ 3 in the millions 24/3 = ____ 1 in the thousands Daily activity in student 5/2 = ____ journal providing 9/8 = ____ _______________ children with continuous practice and review of Use a full circle True or False? protractor to draw all mathematical and label an angle 5,894 is divisible by 6. ___ content learned up to MAD, whose 6,789 is divisible measure is 105 that point. degrees. by 2. ___ 9,024 is divisible by 4. ___
  11. 11. Lessons based on activities and discussion, not a textbook… SRB Students record, organize, and demonstrate their learning in a math journal. Focus is on learning process-most written information is aimed at the teacher Students use a variety of math tools Student Reference Book contains information related to lesson content and game rules.
  12. 12. BASIC FACTS Students will learn and practice all of the basic facts in many different ways without having an overwhelming number of drill pages. Games Fact Triangles Addition/Subtraction and Multiplication/Division Facts Tables Dominoes
  13. 13. Differentiation Everyday Mathematics offers many opportunities for teachers to meet the varying needs of each student. The program is flexible in that it is possible to adjust or modify most activities according to student needs. A differentiated classroom is a rich learning environment that provides students with multiple avenues for acquiring content, making sense of ideas, developing skills, and demonstrating what they know.
  14. 14. Challenging Advanced Math Skills Lessons move students beyond basic arithmetic and nurture their higher-order and critical thinking skills. Students are challenged to think flexibly, articulate their understandings, and explain problem-solving strategies. Options for enrichment, extension, and game variations provide a challenge to highly capable students. Breadth and depth of mathematics and brisk pacing provides challenges for students eager to explore topics such as algebra or data and chance.
  15. 15. Everyday Mathematics Games One of many forms Increase mental for practicing facts flexibility and and other skills number sense Integral component Games are to be of Everyday revisited and played Mathematics, not on a regular basis optional
