Intro to everyday math night 2009

  1. 1. Welcome to Everyday Math!
  2. 2. Background of Everyday Math... <ul><li>Developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project </li></ul><ul><li>Based on research about how children learn and develop mathematical power </li></ul><ul><li>Provides the broad mathematical background needed in the 21 st century </li></ul>
  3. 3. In Everyday Math you can expect to see… <ul><li>A problem solving approach based on everyday situations </li></ul><ul><li>An instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly (spiral curriculum) </li></ul><ul><li>Frequent practice of basic skills, often through games </li></ul><ul><li>Lessons based on activities and discussion, not a textbook </li></ul><ul><li>Mathematical content that goes beyond basic arithmetic </li></ul>
  4. 4. A Spiraling Curriculum… <ul><li>Mastery of mathematics concepts and skills comes with repeated exposure and practice, not after just one lesson </li></ul><ul><li>Enables new connections and building on what has already been learned while learning more difficult and challenging content </li></ul>
  5. 5. Components of an Everyday Math Lesson
  6. 6. Warm-Up Activities <ul><li>Mental Math and Reflexes- Exercises, (usually oral), designed to strengthen children’s number sense and to review and advance essential basic skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Math Message- Sets the tone and focus for the content of the lesson. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Sample Math Message… <ul><li>Madeline had $38 in her bank account. </li></ul><ul><li>She Deposited another $15. </li></ul><ul><li>How much money was in her account then? </li></ul>
  8. 8. Introduction of New Content <ul><li>The main part of the lesson focusing on new content </li></ul><ul><li>Math Journal Pages- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reinforce the concepts being taught for a particular lesson. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 11. Ongoing Learning & Practice <ul><li>Math Boxes – Reviews and previews mathematical content by providing continuous practice of all skills and concepts in Everyday Math. </li></ul><ul><li>Math boxes are designed as independent practice. </li></ul>
  10. 14. Ongoing Learning & Practice <ul><li>Games – provides necessary practice for children to build, master, and maintain strong mental arithmetic skills. </li></ul>
  11. 15. Home Links/Study Links <ul><li>Everyday Math’s version of homework. </li></ul><ul><li>Each lesson has a Home/Study Link . Home/Study Links are reviewed before the lesson begins. </li></ul><ul><li>Important for your child to bring their Home/Study Links back to school. </li></ul><ul><li>Authors encourage family support for Home/Study Link completion </li></ul>
  12. 16. Purpose of Home/Study Links: <ul><li>To promote follow-up </li></ul><ul><li>To provide enrichment </li></ul><ul><li>They offer opportunities for you to become involved in your child’s math education. </li></ul>
  13. 17. Important Materials to Support Your Child at Home… <ul><li>Student Reference Book (SRB) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each Home/Study Link provides a correlation to the SRB for additional support on a topic. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Parent Letters </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides an overview of the current unit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides key mathematical vocabulary and definitions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides answer keys for Home/Study Links </li></ul></ul>
  14. 22. Assessment <ul><li>Everyday Math curriculum provides many different opportunities for teachers to determine individual student progress </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Written </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Verbal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Observations </li></ul></ul>
  15. 23. In Conclusion…Our goal is to help students develop mathematical literacy
