Description

Join TKG for MATHS supported by #GrowthMindset and #CollaborativeLearning

First Semester, 2018-2019 meets weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 9-10:00 am. Semester dates: SEPT 24-JAN 25 with Thanksgiving and Winter holiday

Evergreens Math Course Outline

Facilitated by Jen Ceci, TKG Math Teacher. This course is designed to help students cultivate a Growth Mindset by establishing a new set of “Math Norms” in the math classroom, described as follows by Stanford Professor Jo Boaler in her book “Mathematical Mindset”:

  1. Everyone can learn math to the highest level.

  2. Mistakes are valuable.

  3. Depth is more important than speed.

  4. Math is about creativity and making sense.

  5. Math is about connections and communicating.

  6. Questions are really important.

  7. Math class is about learning, not performing.

The focus of the first semester of Evergreens Math will be on extending division to two-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations. Students will learn and practice math concepts in two ways – Small Group Instruction with the teacher and Independent Digital Lessons, which will be completed outside of the classroom.

Small Group Instruction will begin with a Fluency Focus, in which they review past number understandings and sharpen understandings needed for work coming up. Next students will develop their problem-solving strategies as they take on relevant contextual problems, allowing for an opportunity to refine their collaboration and communication skills. Finally, they will explore new concepts by working with concrete manipulatives, pictorial and visual representations and abstract representations.

Supporting conceptual development and practice will be completed outside of the classroom in the Independent Digital Lessons. Students will be expected to complete three complete Independent Digital Lessons each week, in order to keep up with the pace of the course. Each lesson is expected to take 30-45 minutes each. Lessons have two “Fluency Focus” portions, followed by a “Guided Practice” exercise to reinforce the new concepts taught in class. Independent Practice exercises wrap up the lesson, and an optional bonus activity is offered for those who would like to extend the lesson.

The following Common Core Standards will be covered during the first semester of this course: 5.NBT.1, 5.NBT.2, 5.NBT.3, 5.NBT.4, 5.NBT.5, 5.NBT.6, 5.NBT.7, 5.MD.1, 5.OA.1, 5.OA.2 in 15 weeks/44 meetings.
