• Are your students struggling with solving open-ended mathematics items?
• Are you struggling with facilitating open-ended mathematics tasks and developing students’ problem solving skills through purposeful use of technology?

This series will engage participants in activities and discussion designed to expand current perspectives and pedagogies around how to best support students in solving open-ended math tasks.

• To “flip the switch” on students’ problem solving skills, 3 Act Tasks will be introduced and implemented through synchronous and asynchronous instruction.

• Strategies will be explored to support students’ comprehension of word problems.

• Techniques will be highlighted to improve students’ spoken and written math explanations.

• Teachers will be introduced to strategies for providing student feedback to help students improve their problem solving and writing skills.

• An overview of the scoring of PSSA items will be reviewed to provide context as to why these strategies are essential to bolster all students’ achievement.

• Free tools such as Desmos, Google Slides, Flipgrid, and Nearpod will be utilized throughout.
